Prayer of ConfessionAlmighty God, you graciously sent your Son Jesus to offer us a life that is full and blessed.  But we confess that we so often settle for less.  We conform to the ways of the world rather than be transformed by your Son.  Forgive us and raise us from our sins, so that we may be your faithful people.  Help us to become more like Christ and less like the world, for the glory of your matchless name.  Amen.

Assurance of Pardon: Our God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He removes our sins as far as the east is from the west  In Him we are forgiven!
