Call to Confession
We have turned away from God in perpetual backsliding. Instead of relenting from our evil, asking, "What have we done?" We press forward on our own paths, headlong into destruction. Let us confess our sin before God and throw ourselves on God's mercy.
Prayer of Confession, P15C
We are indeed heartsick, O God,
for our lack of faithfulness has resulted
in a web of deceit we do not know how
Sometimes our desire to escape it
is overcome by our desire for
We want what we want.
We justify our disobedience by blaming others.
We continue to flaunt our plaything-gods.
O Great Physician, heal our souls!
Turn us back to you, we pray.
Save us from ourselves.
In your great mercy, Lord,
and lead us in paths of righteousness
for your name's sake.
Assurance of God's Grace
Even when we are not, God is faithful, and seeing our propensity for sin, God sent God's son, Jesus, into the world not to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. In the name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven! Thanks be to God!
Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us also forgive one another. The peace of Christ be with you.
Please extend the peace of Christ to all whom you encounter today~
