In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice
In the morning, I prepare a sacrifice for You and watch
O come, O come Emmanuel
Holy scripture reminds us in many places that we should acknowledge and confess our sins and not try to deny them or hide them from God, our Heavenly Father, but rather, we should confess them with a humble and penitent heart, trusting in His infinite mercy and goodness.
(Use this time to examine your life and confess your sins before God. You may choose to pray the following)
O Merciful God, the Fountain of goodness, who knows the thoughts of our hearts; we confess to you that we have sinned against you, and done evil in your sight. Wash us, we pray, from the stains of our past sins, and give us grace and power to put away all hurtful things; that being delivered from the bondage of sin, we may walk in the path of your commandments; through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN
The Lord’s Prayer
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 trespasses
as we forgive those who
trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power
and the glory forever. AMEN

Lord, write these words on my heart
that I might not sin against you.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. AMEN
Lord, have mercy
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayers
ALMIGHTY GOD, give us grace that we may cast away
the works of darkness, and put upon us the armor of
light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which thy Son
Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the
last day, when he shall come again in his glorious Majesty,
to judge both the quick and dead, we may rise to the life
immortal, through him who lives and reigns with thee
and the Holy Ghost, now and ever. Amen.
( Now offer your prayers to God, giving thanks, lifting up those in need and asking for His blessing. Please remember the requests of the congregation. )
O God, the might of all them that put their trust in you, grant that we may be more than conquerors over all makes war upon our souls, and in the end , may enter into perfect peace in your presence, AMEN
Let us bless the Lord
Thanks be to God.
