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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION & ASSURANCE OF FORGIVENESS

Heavenly Father, 

You alone are gracious, full of compassion, slow to anger, and abounding with mercy.

There is always forgiveness with You! 

Restore to us the joy of Your salvation and forgive us our sins. 

Heal in us Lord, that which is broken; shine Your light in our minds, give strength to our wills and peace in our souls. 

In Jesus Name!  Amen.

 

The good news is—“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness”  (I John 1:9)

SCRIPTURES ~  

 

Ephesians 4:29

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only

what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it

may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,

with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all

bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form

of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each

other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

 

5:1 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk

in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a

fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

John 15:12-15

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down

one’s life for one’s friends.

14 You are my friends if you do what I command.

15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant

does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have

called you friends, for everything that I learned from

myFather I have made known to you.

BENEDICTION

Oh, Father God!  

We have been down paths that we thought were dead ends, yet You, Oh Lord, rescue us.  

We have experienced things that we thought would never heal, yet You, Lord, heal us. 

We have been scared, afraid and paralyzed by evil, and yet You, Oh Lord, protect us.  

Thank you that we know now, "The Lord lives!"  

Blessed be My Rock, My Redeemer, My Comforter and My Friend!  

Blessed be the God of My Salvation whose Spirit lives within me!Thank You Jesus!  Amen.
