THE CALL TO CONFESSION 

 

THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION 

Spirit of the Living Lord, tell us of God’s mercy and faithfulness; witness to us God’s hope and justice. Where we have not followed Christ, direct our paths. Where we have not commanded your praise, rebuke our hearts. Come to us in the times of brokenness and defeat. Minister to us in this time of famine and chaos. Forgive us, O God, and remind us of your enduring love. Breathe your Spirit upon our lives and make us holy and one in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.

Leader: And so I declare to you, in Jesus Christ we are forgiven. 

People: Thanks be to God!

Hast thou not bid us love thee, God and King; all, all thine own: soul, heart and strength, and mind? I see thy cross, there teach my heart to cling. O let me seek thee, and O let me find!

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.
