Confession and Forgiveness

In the name of the Father, and of the + Son, and of the Holy Spirit.


Let us with confidence draw near to God in confession, that we may receive mercy and find grace in time of need.

(Silence is kept for reflection)

Have mercy on us, O God,

according to your lovingkindness. In your great mercy, wash away our iniquity and cleanse us from our sin. Create in us clean hearts, O God, and renew a right spirit within us. Do not remove us from your presence; do not take your Spirit away. Restore to us the joy of your salvation, and sustain us with your Spirit. Amen.

Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our + Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life.


L: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of

the Holy Spirit be with you all.

C: And also with you.

L: Let us pray:

All: Holy God, your word feeds your people with life that is eternal. Direct our choices and preserve us in your truth, that, renouncing what is false and evil, we may live in you, through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Hymn # 758 “You Are the Way”

1. You are the way; to you alone from sin and death we flee; all those who search for God, you find and by your grace set free.

2. You are the truth; your word alone true wisdom can impart; you only can inform the mind and purify the heart.

3. You are the life; the rending tomb proclaims your conquering arm; and those who put their trust in you not death nor hell shall harm.

4. You are the way, the truth, the life; grant us that way to know, that truth to keep, that life to win, whose joys eternal flow.

L: With the whole church, let us confess our faith:

All: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ,

God’s only Son, our Lord,

Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

He descended to the dead.

On the third day he rose again.

He ascended into heaven,

He is seated at the right hand of the Father,

And he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

The Prayers

L: . . .Lord, in your mercy,

C: Hear our prayer.


Let us pray:

O God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Gathered into one by the Holy Spirit, let us pray as Jesus taught us:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen



Hymn #810 “O Jesus, I Have Promised”

1. O Jesus, I have promised to serve you to the end; remain forever near me, my master and my friend. I shall not fear the battle if you are by my side, nor wander from the pathway if you will be my guide.

2. Oh, let me feel you near me; the world is ever near. I see the sights that dazzle, the tempting sounds I hear. My foes are ever near me, around me and within; but, Jesus, then draw nearer to shield my soul from sin.

3. Oh, let me hear you speaking in accents clear and still above the storms of passion, the murmurs of self will. Now speak to reassure me, to hasten or control; now speak and make me listen, O Guardian of my soul.

4. O Jesus, you have promised to all who follow you that where you are in glory your servant shall be too. And Jesus, I have promised to serve you to the end; oh, give me grace to follow, my master and my friend.

L: Go in peace. Serve the Lord.

C: Thanks be to God.
