Call to Worship

Sing to God, sing praises to his name;
lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts;
his name is the Lord;
exult before him!
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows
is God in his holy habitation.

Psalm 68:4-5

*Gloria Patri (No. 734)

*Hymn No. 77             Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven

Call to Confession      Psalm 24:3-4

Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?     And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully.

Let us confess our sins

Prayer of Confession (unison)

Most holy and merciful Father; we acknowledge and confess before You our sinful nature prone to evil and slothful in good, and all our shortcomings and offenses.  You alone know how often we have sinned in wandering from Your ways, in wasting Your gifts, in forgetting Your love.  But You, O Lord, have mercy upon us who are ashamed and sorry for all wherein we have displeased You.  Teach us to hate our errors.  Cleanse us from all our faults and forgive our sins.  For the sake of Your dear Son.  And most holy and loving Father, help us, we pray, to live in Your light and walk in Your ways according to the commandments of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Private Confession

Assurance of Forgiveness:      Romans 5:10

For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.
