*HYMN NO. 218 “Take the Name of Jesus With You”

*PRAYER OF CONFESSION
Trustworthy Lord, Your name is greater than riches; your favor is better than silver and gold. Even so, we confess our sins before you:
We have taken your name in vain; we have misplaced your favor for our own benefit. When we are at work, your glory is far from our hearts. When we are at home, your success is nowhere nearby. Have mercy on us, Lord, and rebuke us. Turn our eyes from judgment and Turn our hearts from partiality, that our faith might be kindled once again, Renewed to your glory and committed to your honor. In the name of your son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, and by the power of your Spirit we pray all things. Amen.

*ASSURANCE OF PARDON
“Strengthen the weak hands and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those with a fearful heart, ‘Be strong, and do not fear! Here is your God!’ God shall come and save you.” In the Name of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven.
