C: Let all that we are praise the Lord; with our whole hearts, we will praise his holy name. Let all that we are praise the Lord; may we never forget the good things he does for us.

Reading: Confession

C: Jesus, my Savior, I am helpless and lost in my sin. Cause my heart to rely only on you, knowing that you alone can save my feeble heart and rescue me from my depravity.
L: Let your mercy follow me while I live, call me to repentance, and give me aid to resign myself to your grace and will.
C: I confess my sins. In your mercy, forgive me. 
L: Through your death and resurrection you have overcome my sin, fulfilled the law, finished justifying righteousness, swallowed up death in victory, and saved me from the powers of evil. 
C: I confess my continual need for your grace and rejoice in the vast depths of Your mercy in which I find peace and restoration! Amen
– adapted from The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions

Reading: Assurance

L: But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, he did not forsake or leave us in our death, but he made us alive by his Spirit together with Christ and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 
C: For by his grace we have been saved through faith. And this is not our own doing; it is the gift of God!
– based on Ephesians 2:4-8

Song: “All Hail The Power of Jesus’ Name” by Oliver Holden, Edward Perronet, and John (adapt) Rippon


Hear this benediction as we go:

L:Know that you have been saved from death and sin by the sacrifice of Christ. Trust in the spirit’s guidance and the promise of eternity, made by the one who has brought you from death to life. Go in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
C: And also with you.
