ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS
ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS
(1 John 1:5,7)
This is the message we have heard from God and proclaim to you, that
God is light and in God there is no darkness at all. If we walk in the light,
as God is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood
of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

CALL TO CONFESSION
PRAYER OF CONFESSION
(Unison)
Father, we are sorry for the many times we have left you and chosen
to satisfy our own selfishness. We have hurt members of our families
in many ways, such as refusing to do our share of the family tasks.
For the times we were unkind and impatient with those who needed
our time and concern; for the times we were too weak to stand up for
what was right and allowed others to suffer because of our
cowardice; and for the times we refused to forgive others, we ask
you to forgive us Father for we have sinned.

God of love, we thank you for all of your blessings: for the joy in
days of strength and health, for your constant presence with us, for
family and friends, and most of all for the gift of your son Jesus,
who gave his life for our sake. As we return a portion of our
material blessings to you, help us to remember from whom these
gifts have come. May we share them in the building of your
kingdom. Amen.
