Grace to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Phillipians 1:2
Confession of Sin Most merciful God,
I confess that I have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what I have done, and by what I have left undone. I have not loved you with my whole heart; I have not loved my neighbors as myself. I am truly sorry and I humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on me and forgive me; that I may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.
Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen
The Invitatory Psalms
The following Antiphon may be sung or said with the Invitatory PsalmThe earth is the Lord's for he made it: Come let us adore him.
Venite Psalm 95:1-7
Come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the caverns of the earth,
and the heights of the hills are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands have molded the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee,
and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!
(5) Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.'' (6) No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man. (7) But it is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another. (8) In the hand of the LORD is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs.
(9) As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob. (10) I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
(5) Valiant men lie plundered, they sleep their last sleep; not one of the warriors can lift his hands. (6) At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both horse and chariot lie still. (7) You alone are to be feared. Who can stand before you when you are angry? (8) From heaven you pronounced judgment, and the land feared and was quiet--
(9) when you, O God, rose up to judge, to save all the afflicted of the land. Selah (10) Surely your wrath against men brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained. (11) Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them; let all the neighboring lands bring gifts to the One to be feared. (12) He breaks the spirit of rulers; he is feared by the kings of the earth.
(5) When his enemies were threatening him from every side, he prayed to the mighty Lord Most High, and his prayer was answered with a hailstorm of devastating force. (6) The Lord hurled the hail down on the enemy and destroyed them at the pass at Beth Horon, so that the nations would realize how strong Joshua was, since he was fighting as a devoted follower of the Lord. (7) Joshua was loyal as long as Moses lived, both he and Caleb son of Jephunneh. They stood up to the whole community, made them stop their ungrateful complaining, and kept them from sinning. (8) Out of the , Israelites who marched through the wilderness, these two were the only ones spared and allowed to enter the rich and fertile land that was to be theirs.
(9) The Lord made Caleb strong, and when he was an old man, he was still strong enough to go up into the hill country and capture it for himself and his descendants. (10) Then all of Israel could see how good it is to follow the Lord.
The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
2 Corinthians 13
(5) Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you-- unless, of course, you fail the test? (6) And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test. (7) Now we pray to God that you will not do anything wrong. Not that people will see that we have stood the test but that you will do what is right even though we may seem to have failed. (8) For we cannot do anything against the truth, but only for the truth.
(9) We are glad whenever we are weak but you are strong; and our prayer is for your perfection. (10) This is why I write these things when I am absent, that when I come I may not have to be harsh in my use of authority-- the authority the Lord gave me for building you up, not for tearing you down. (11) Finally, brothers, good-by. Aim for perfection, listen to my appeal, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. (12) Greet one another with a holy kiss.
(13) All the saints send their greetings. (14) May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
(5) They discussed it among themselves and said, 'If we say, 'From heaven,' he will ask, 'Why didn't you believe him?' (6) But if we say, 'From men,' all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet.' (7) So they answered, 'We don't know where it was from.' (8) Jesus said, 'Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.'

Thanks be to God.

Almighty God, Father of all mercies, we your unworthy servants give you humble thanks for all your goodness and loving-kindness to us and to all whom you have made. We bless you for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; but above all for your immeasurable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies, that with truly thankful hearts we may show forth your praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives, by giving up ourselves to your service, and by walking before you in holiness and righteousness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen. -- or --
A Prayer of St. Chrysostom
Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication to you; and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will be in the midst of them: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting. Amen.
