Grace to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Phillipians 1:2 Confession of Sin
Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation. And so that we may prepare ourselves in heart and mind to worship him, let us kneel in silence, and with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.or this
Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.
Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.
*A deacon or lay person using the preceding form remains kneeling, and substitutes 'us' for 'you' and 'our' for 'your.'

Thanks be to God.
Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck. (2)
I sink in deep mire, Where there is no standing; I have come into deep waters, Where the floods overflow me. (3)
I am weary with my crying; My throat is dry; My eyes fail while I wait for my God. (4)
Those who hate me without a cause Are more than the hairs of my head; They are mighty who would destroy me, Being my enemies wrongfully; Though I have stolen nothing, I still must restore it.
(5) O God, You know my foolishness; And my sins are not hidden from You. (6) Let not those who wait for You, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed because of me; Let not those who seek You be confounded because of me, O God of Israel. (7) Because for Your sake I have borne reproach; Shame has covered my face. (8) I have become a stranger to my brothers, And an alien to my mother's children;
(9) Because zeal for Your house has eaten me up, And the reproaches of those who reproach You have fallen on me. (10) When I wept and chastened my soul with fasting, That became my reproach. (11) I also made sackcloth my garment; I became a byword to them. (12) Those who sit in the gate speak against me, And I am the song of the drunkards.
(13) But as for me, my prayer is to You, O LORD, in the acceptable time; O God, in the multitude of Your mercy, Hear me in the truth of Your salvation. (14) Deliver me out of the mire, And let me not sink; Let me be delivered from those who hate me, And out of the deep waters. (15) Let not the floodwater overflow me, Nor let the deep swallow me up; And let not the pit shut its mouth on me. (16) Hear me, O LORD, for Your lovingkindness is good; Turn to me according to the multitude of Your tender mercies.
(17) And do not hide Your face from Your servant, For I am in trouble; Hear me speedily. (18) Draw near to my soul, and redeem it; Deliver me because of my enemies. (19) You know my reproach, my shame, and my dishonor; My adversaries are all before You. (20) Reproach has broken my heart, And I am full of heaviness; I looked for someone to take pity, but there was none; And for comforters, but I found none.
(21) They also gave me gall for my food, And for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink. (22) Let their table become a snare before them, And their well-being a trap. (23) Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see; And make their loins shake continually. (24) Pour out Your indignation upon them, And let Your wrathful anger take hold of them.
(25) Let their dwelling place be desolate; Let no one live in their tents. (26) For they persecute the ones You have struck, And talk of the grief of those You have wounded. (27) Add iniquity to their iniquity, And let them not come into Your righteousness. (28) Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, And not be written with the righteous.
(29) But I am poor and sorrowful; Let Your salvation, O God, set me up on high. (30) I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving. (31) This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bull, Which has horns and hooves. (32) The humble shall see this and be glad; And you who seek God, your hearts shall live.
(33) For the LORD hears the poor, And does not despise His prisoners. (34) Let heaven and earth praise Him, The seas and everything that moves in them. (35) For God will save Zion And build the cities of Judah, That they may dwell there and possess it. (36) Also, the descendants of His servants shall inherit it, And those who love His name shall dwell in it.
The Lord raised up Aaron, a holy man like his brother Moses, of the tribe of Levi. (7)
He made an eternal covenant with him, giving him the privilege of serving as priest to the Lord's people. He honored him by clothing him with magnificent robes and fine ornaments, (8)
perfect in their splendor. He granted him the symbols of authority: the linen shorts, the shirt, and the robe with the pomegranates around the hem. (9)
Gold bells were also around its hem, so that when he walked, their ringing would be heard in the Temple, and the Lord would remember his people.
(10) The Lord gave Aaron the sacred robe with the gold, blue, and purple embroidery; the breastpiece with the Urim and Thummim; (11) the red yarn, spun by an expert; the precious stones with names engraved on them, mounted in a gold setting by a jeweler, placed on the breastpiece to remind the Lord of the twelve tribes of Israel. (12) He gave him the turban with the gold ornament engraved with the words 'Dedicated to the Lord.' It was expertly crafted, a beautiful work of art, and it was a high honor to wear it. (13) Before Aaron's time such beautiful things were never seen. No one but Aaron and his descendants ever wore them, or ever will.
(14) The grain offering is to be presented twice a day and burned completely. (15) Moses ordained Aaron to office by pouring the sacred anointing oil over his head. An eternal covenant was made with him and his descendants, that they would serve the Lord as his priests and bless the people in the Lord's name. (16) The Lord chose Aaron out of the whole human race to offer sacrifices, to burn fragrant incense to remind the Lord of his people, and to take away their sins.
I have become a fool in boasting; you have compelled me. For I ought to have been commended by you; for in nothing was I behind the most eminent apostles, though I am nothing. (12)
Truly the signs of an apostle were accomplished among you with all perseverance, in signs and wonders and mighty deeds. (13)
For what is it in which you were inferior to other churches, except that I myself was not burdensome to you? Forgive me this wrong! (14)
Now for the third time I am ready to come to you. And I will not be burdensome to you; for I do not seek yours, but you. For the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.
(15) And I will very gladly spend and be spent for your souls; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I am loved. (16) But be that as it may, I did not burden you. Nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you by cunning! (17) Did I take advantage of you by any of those whom I sent to you? (18) I urged Titus, and sent our brother with him. Did Titus take advantage of you? Did we not walk in the same spirit? Did we not walk in the same steps?
(19) Again, do you think that we excuse ourselves to you? We speak before God in Christ. But we do all things, beloved, for your edification. (20) For I fear lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I wish, and that I shall be found by you such as you do not wish; lest there be contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, backbitings, whisperings, conceits, tumults; (21) lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and I shall mourn for many who have sinned before and have not repented of the uncleanness, fornication, and lewdness which they have practiced.
Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, (42)
saying, 'If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. (43)
For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, (44)
and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.'
(45) Then He went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in it, (46) saying to them, 'It is written, 'My house is a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.' ' (47) And He was teaching daily in the temple. But the chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people sought to destroy Him, (48) and were unable to do anything; for all the people were very attentive to hear Him.
The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.CanticlesCanticles can be prayed or sung after each reading or after all readings.After the Old Testament a Canticle may be read or Silence may be kept after each Reading. One of the following Canticles can be sung or said after each reading.
10 The Second Song of Isaiah       Quaerite Dominum
Seek the Lord while he wills to be found; *
call upon him when he draws near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways *
and the evil ones their thoughts;
And let them turn to the Lord, and he will have compassion, *
and to our God, for he will richly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, *
nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, *
so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as rain and snow fall from the heavens *
and return not again, but water the earth,
Bringing forth life and giving growth, *
seed for sowing and bread for eating,
So is my word that goes forth from my mouth; *
it will not return to me empty;
But it will accomplish that which I have purposed, *
and prosper in that for which I sent it.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
The Apostles' Creed *Officiant and People together, all standing
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He 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, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,

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.
