CONFESSION OF SIN
“Our Father in heaven, You have loved us with an everlasting love and set us on paths of righteousness for your own name’s sake. Yet we have strayed from your way and sinned against you in word, thought and deed - through what we have done and what we have left undone. We confess that in our unbelief, we have often failed to trust your promises, believe in your mercy and respond with zeal for your kingdom. Forgive our many sins, cleanse us from all unrighteousness and minister to us, we pray, that we might rise up from this time of worship renewed by your grace and ready to joyfully to serve your everlasting kingdom. In Jesus name, Amen."
ASSURANCE OF GOD’S PARDON
“Come now let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”
