Call to Worship

Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!

Blessed be the name of the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised!

The Lord is high above all nations,
and his glory above the heavens!
Who is like the Lord our God,
 who is seated on high,

Psalm 113:1-5

Call to Confession                  Joel 2:12-13

“Yet even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; and rend your hearts and not your garments.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster.

Let us confess our sins

Prayer of Confession  (unison)

Most merciful Father, who of Thy great compassion toward us sinners didst give Thine only-begotten Son to be an offering for our sins:  Grant us grace, we humbly beseech Thee, that being united unto Him by Thy Spirit, and made partakers of His sufferings and death, we may die daily unto the world and lead holy and unblameable lives.  Cleaving unto His cross in all the temptations of life, may we hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, and finally attain unto the resurrection of the just; through the merits of the same once crucified but now risen and exalted Savior. 

Private Confession

Assurance of Forgiveness:      Colossians 1:13-14

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.  Congregation:  Thanks be to God!
