The hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. John 4:23 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.'
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. AmenThe Invitatory and Psalter Officiant:

Jubilate Psalm 100
Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with gladness and come before his presence with a song.
Know this: The Lord himself is God;
he himself has made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and call upon his Name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his faithfulness endures from age to age.
The following Antiphon may be sung or said
The mercy of the Lord is everlasting: Come let us adore him.
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.Glory 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.
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.Glory 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.
Blessed be the LORD God of our fathers, who has put such a thing as this in the king's heart, to beautify the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem, (28)
and has extended mercy to me before the king and his counselors, and before all the king's mighty princes. So I was encouraged, as the hand of the LORD my God was upon me; and I gathered leading men of Israel to go up with me. (21)
Then I proclaimed a fast there at the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions. (22)
For I was ashamed to request of the king an escort of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy on the road, because we had spoken to the king, saying, 'The hand of our God is upon all those for good who seek Him, but His power and His wrath are against all those who forsake Him.' (23)
So we fasted and entreated our God for this, and He answered our prayer. (24)
And I separated twelve of the leaders of the priests -- Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them -- (25)
and weighed out to them the silver, the gold, and the articles, the offering for the house of our God which the king and his counselors and his princes, and all Israel who were present, had offered. (26)
I weighed into their hand six hundred and fifty talents of silver, silver articles weighing one hundred talents, one hundred talents of gold, (27)
twenty gold basins worth a thousand drachmas, and two vessels of fine polished bronze, precious as gold. (28)
And I said to them, 'You are holy to the LORD; the articles are holy also; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering to the LORD God of your fathers. (29)
Watch and keep them until you weigh them before the leaders of the priests and the Levites and heads of the fathers' houses of Israel in Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD.' (30)
So the priests and the Levites received the silver and the gold and the articles by weight, to bring them to Jerusalem to the house of our God. (31)
Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go to Jerusalem. And the hand of our God was upon us, and He delivered us from the hand of the enemy and from ambush along the road. (32)
So we came to Jerusalem, and stayed there three days. (33)
Now on the fourth day the silver and the gold and the articles were weighed in the house of our God by the hand of Meremoth the son of Uriah the priest, and with him was Eleazar the son of Phinehas; with them were the Levites, Jozabad the son of Jeshua and Noadiah the son of Binnui, (34)
with the number and weight of everything. All the weight was written down at that time. (35)
The children of those who had been carried away captive, who had come from the captivity, offered burnt offerings to the God of Israel: twelve bulls for all Israel, ninety-six rams, seventy-seven lambs, and twelve male goats as a sin offering. All this was a burnt offering to the LORD. (36)
And they delivered the king's orders to the king's satraps and the governors in the region beyond the River. So they gave support to the people and the house of God. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete. (2)
And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. (3)
They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: 'Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints! (4)
Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested.' (5)
After these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened. (6)
And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands. (7)
Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever. (8)
The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
When Jesus heard it, He departed from there by boat to a deserted place by Himself. But when the multitudes heard it, they followed Him on foot from the cities. (14)
And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick. (15)
When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, 'This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food.' (16)
But Jesus said to them, 'They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.' (17)
And they said to Him, 'We have here only five loaves and two fish.' (18)
He said, 'Bring them here to Me.' (19)
Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. (20)
So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained. (21)
Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children. The Gospel of the Lord.
Thanks be to God. Canticles can be prayed or sung after each reading or after all readings.
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 forever. 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,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen. The Prayers *The People stand or kneel Officiant :
