PRAYER OF CONFESSION (UNISON)
O Lord Jesus, because, being full of foolishness, we often sin and have to ask your pardon. Help us to forgive as we would be forgiven, neither mentioning old offenses committed against us, nor dwelling upon them in thought, nor being influenced by them in heart; but loving each other freely as you freely love us, for your name's sake. Amen.
Assurance of Pardon
Hear the good news! In Christ Jesus, we are forgiven and set free from our own self- righteousness.
