Let us humbly confess our sins unto Almighty God


Most Gracious and Loving God,

We confess that we have sinned against thee

and done what is evil in thy sight;

That we have turned from thy ways

both in things done and left undone;

A period of silence for reflection may follow. 

Wherefore we beseech thee O Lord,

Have mercy upon us; forgive us all our sins.

Cast us not away from thy presence

But cleanse us with thy Spirit;

That we may walk in newness of life;

And this we ask in the Name of thy Son

Our savior, Jesus Christ. Amen


O Lord, we beseech thee, mercifully hear our prayers, and grant us Absolution and Remission of all our sins, true repentance; amendment of life, and the grace and consolation of Thy Holy Spirit. Amen.


V. O God, make speed to save us.

R. O Lord, make haste to help us.


V. GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Psalm 25:1 To Thee, O LORD, I lift up my soul.

 2 O my God, in Thee I trust, Do not let me be ashamed; Do not let my enemies exult over me.

 3 Indeed, none of those who wait for Thee will be ashamed; Those who deal treacherously without cause will be ashamed.

 4 Make me know Thy ways, O LORD; Teach me Thy paths.

 5 Lead me in Thy truth and teach me, For Thou art the God of my salvation; For Thee I wait all the day.

 6 Remember, O LORD, Thy compassion and Thy lovingkindnesses, For they have been from of old.

 7 Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; According to Thy lovingkindness remember Thou me, For Thy goodness' sake, O LORD.

 8 Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He instructs sinners in the way.

 9 He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.

Psalm 143:1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, Give ear to my supplications! Answer me in Thy faithfulness, in Thy righteousness!

 2 And do not enter into judgment with Thy servant, For in Thy sight no man living is righteous.

 3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul; He has crushed my life to the ground; He has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead.

 4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; My heart is appalled within me.

 5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Thy doings; I muse on the work of Thy hands.

 6 I stretch out my hands to Thee; My soul longs for Thee, as a parched land. Selah.

 7 Answer me quickly, O LORD, my spirit fails; Do not hide Thy face from me, Lest I become like those who go down to the pit.

 8 Let me hear Thy lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in Thee; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to Thee I lift up my soul.

 9 Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies; I take refuge in Thee.

 10 Teach me to do Thy will, For Thou art my God; Let Thy good Spirit lead me on level ground.

 11 For the sake of Thy name, O LORD, revive me. In Thy righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.

 12 And in Thy lovingkindness cut off my enemies, And destroy all those who afflict my soul; For I am Thy servant.


V. GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

 R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
