In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice
In the morning, I prepare a sacrifice for You and watch
Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.
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

Grant us, O Lord, to pass this day in gladness and peace, without stumbling and without sin; that, reaching the evening victorious over all temptation, we may praise you, the eternal God, who is blessed, and governs all things, world without end. AMEN.
Let us bless the Lord
Thanks be to God.
