and you preserve all of them; 

and the host of heaven worships you.

CONFESSION OF SIN –  Book of Common Prayer

ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father; 

We have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. 

We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. 

We have offended against thy holy laws. 

We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; 

And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; 

And there is no health in us. 

But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. 

Spare thou those, O God, who confess their faults. 

Restore thou those who are penitent; 

According to thy promises declared unto mankind In Christ Jesus our Lord. 

And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; 

That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, 

To the glory of thy holy Name. 


ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ezekiel 36:25-28

Hear this Assurance of Pardon from Ezekiel 36:25-28

I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; 

I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. 

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; 

I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 

And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees 

and be careful to keep my laws. 

Then you will live in the land I gave your ancestors; you will be my people, 

and I will be your God.
