Preparation for Worship – “They that receive the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper are, before they come, to prepare themselves thereunto, by examining themselves of their being in Christ, of their sins and wants; of the truth and measure of their knowledge, faith, repentance; love to God and the brethren, charity to all men, forgiving those that have done them wrong; of their desires after Christ, and of their new obedience; and by renewing the exercise of these graces, by serious meditation, and fervent prayer” (Westminster Larger Catechism #171)

Unison Prayer of Confession

God of grace, we confess that we have elevated the things of this world above you. We have made idols of possessions and people. We have permitted our schedules to come first and have not always taken the time to worship you. We have not always honored those who guided us in this life. We have been unfaithful in our covenant relationships. We have misrepresented other’s intentions. Forgive us, O God, for the many ways we fall short of your glory.

Prayer with the Lord’s Prayer

            …Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever. Amen.
