*HYMN NO. 207 “Peace Like a River”

*THE PRAYER OF CONFESSION
God of mercy, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed. Spirit of grace and truth, we have not loved you with our whole hearts; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. Lord of love, we are truly sorry and we humbly repent for the sake of your son, Jesus Christ. Make us to be new creations; have mercy on us. Forgive us. Show us the way of sacrifice that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your name. Amen.

*THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON (Unison)
For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens…He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always confidant; even though we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord – for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we do have confidence. The Almighty God, who does freely pardon all who repent and turn to him, now fulfills in every contrite heart the promise of redeeming grace, forgiving all our sins and cleansing us from an evil conscience, through the perfect sacrifice of Christ Jesus our Lord.
