Confession

Almighty God,
long-suffering and of great goodness:
I confess to you,
I confess with my whole heart
my neglect and forgetfulness of your commandments,
my wrong doing, thinking, and speaking;
the hurts I have done to others,
and the good I have left undone.
O God, forgive me, for I have sinned against you;
and raise me to newness of life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

May almighty God have mercy on us,
forgive us our sins,
and bring us to everlasting life,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
All   Amen

Our Father in heaven, 

Hallowed be your name 

Your kingdom come,

On earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

As we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation 

But deliver us from evil. 

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours  

Now and forever. 

 

Amen
