CONFESSION OF SIN
“Our Father, we thank you that through Jesus Christ our Lord you have brought us from death to life. Yet we confess that we often live as if we are still dead in sin. Our old habits die hard. Our thoughts are impure, our desires ungodly and our actions often betray your commandments. Have mercy upon us, we pray. Forgive these and all of our sins. Help us to walk in the light, casting off everything that hinders the life which you have purposed for us and to count all things as rubbish in order that we may gain Christ and be found in Him. For we pray in His glorious name, Amen.”
ASSURANCE OF GOD’S PARDON
“The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the outcasts of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.” (Psalm 147)
