Confession of Sin
|Officiant||Let us humbly confess our sins to Almighty God.|
Almighty and most merciful Father,
we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.
we have followed too much the deceits and desires of our own hearts.
we have offended against your 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 apart from your grace, there is no health in us.
O Lord, have mercy upon us.
Spare all those who confess their faults.
Restore all those who are penitent, according to your promises declared to all people in Christ Jesus our Lord;
And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake,
that we may now live a godly, righteous, and sober life,
to the glory of your holy Name. Amen.
|A brief silence is kept|
|Officiant||Grant your faithful people, merciful Lord, pardon and peace; that we may be cleansed from all our sins, and serve you with a quiet mind; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.|
|Officiant||O Lord, open our lips;|
|All||And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.|
|Officiant||O God, make speed to save us.|
|All||O Lord, make haste to help us.|
|Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.|
|Officiant||Praise the Lord.|
|All||The Lord's name be praised.|
|Everyone shall join in the following:|
O come, let us sing unto the Lord;*
In his hand are all the depths of the earth*
Today, if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts*
The Psalm or Psalms AppointedThe appointed Psalm is read together
62:1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; *
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
So I have seen you in the sanctuary, *
and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life, *
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live, *
and in your Name I will lift up my hands.
My soul shall be satisfied as with the richest of foods, *
and with joyful lips my mouth shall praise you,
When I remember you upon my bed, *
and meditate on you through the watches of the night.
Because you have been my help, *
I will sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
My soul clings to you; *
your right hand upholds me.
But those who seek my soul, to destroy it, *
shall go down into the depths of the earth;
They shall be given over to the power of the sword; *
they shall be a portion for jackals.
But the king shall rejoice in God;
everyone who swears by him shall glory, *
for the mouths of liars will be silenced.Composite
64:1 Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;
|All||Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.|

Amen.|
|Collect||Almighty God, who after the creation of the world rested from all your works and sanctified a day of rest for all your creatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties, may be duly prepared for the service of your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.|
|Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for the honor of your Name. Amen.|
|Almighty God, Father of all mercies,|
we your unworthy servants give you humble thanks
for all your goodness and loving-kindness
to us and to all whom you have made.
We bless you for our creation, preservation,
and all the blessings of this life;
but above all for your immeasurable love
in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ;
for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.
And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies,
that with truly thankful hearts
we may show forth your praise,
not only with our lips, but in our lives,
by giving up our selves to your service,
and by walking before you
in holiness and righteousness all our days;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,
be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.
|A Prayer of St. Chrysostom||Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication to you; and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will be in the midst of them: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting. Amen.|
|Officiant||Let us bless the Lord.|
|All||Thanks be to God.|
|Officiant||The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all evermore. Amen. |
