Call To General Confession

DEARLY beloved brethren, the Scripture moves us, in sundry places, to acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness; and that we should not dissemble nor cloak them before the face of Almighty God our heavenly Father; but confess them with a humble, lowly, penitent, and obedient heart; to the end that we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by his infinite goodness and mercy.
         And although we ought, at all times, humbly to acknowledge our sins before God; yet ought we chiefly so to do, when we assemble and meet together to render thanks for the great benefits that we have received at his hands, to set forth his most worthy praise, to hear his most holy Word, and to ask those things which are requisite and necessary, as well for the body as the soul.
         Wherefore I pray and beseech you, to accompany me with a pure heart, and humble voice, unto the throne of the heavenly grace,

Please kneel for a time of silent confession

Let us pray

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. Amen.

The Prayer of Absolution and Remission of Sins

O LORD, we beseech thee, mercifully hear our prayers, and spare all those who confess their sins unto thee; that they whose consciences by sin are accused, by thy merciful pardon may be absolved; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Let us Pray

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, for ever and ever. Amen.

O Lord, open thou our lips
And our mouth shall show forth thy praise.

Please Stand

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Praise ye the Lord.
The Lord’s Name be praised.

Let us remain standing and read psalm Psalm _____ responsively


Psalm 1. Beatus vir qui non abiit.

BLESSED is the man that hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, and hath not sat in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law will he exercise himself day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the water-side, that will bring forth his fruit in due season.
4 His leaf also shall not wither; and look, whatsoever he doeth, it shall prosper.
5 As for the ungodly, it is not so with them; but they are like the chaff, which the wind scattereth away from the face of the earth.
6 Therefore the ungodly shall not be able to stand in the judgment, neither the sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
7 But the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous; and the way of the ungodly shall perish.

GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

¶Or this

Psalm 121. Levavi oculos.

I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the hills; from whence cometh my help?
2 My help cometh even from the LORD, who hath made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD himself is thy keeper; the LORD is thy defence upon thy right hand;
6 So that the sun shall not burn thee by day, neither the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil; yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in, from this time forth for evermore.

GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

¶Or this

Psalm 130. De profundis.

OUT of the deep have I called unto thee, O LORD; Lord, hear my voice.
2 O let thine ears consider well the voice of my complaint.
3 If thou, LORD, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss, O Lord, who may abide it?
4 For there is mercy with thee; therefore shalt thou be feared.
5 I look for the LORD; my soul doth wait for him; in his word is my trust.
6 My soul fleeth unto the Lord before the morning watch; I say, before the morning watch.
7 O Israel, trust in the LORD; for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his sins.

GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Christian, what is it that you believe?

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.
