Order of Worship for March 1, 2020
 
 

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

O most merciful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; who pardons us when we truly repent and turn to You, we humbly confess our sins and beg Your mercy. We do not love You with a pure heart fervently, and we do not love our neighbors as ourselves. We act unjustly. We dislike mercy. We refuse to walk humbly with You, our God. Have mercy upon us, O Lord, according to Your lovingkindness, according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out our iniquity. Create in us a clean heart, O God. And renew a right spirit within us. Cast us not away from Your presence, and take not Your Holy Spirit from us. Restore unto us the joy of Your salvation, and uphold us with Your Spirit.
