The Lion and the Lamb

Prayer of Confession

The Lord shelters and protects us. The Lord gives us Life! Yet, we need to bring our burdens and Sin and leave them at the foot of the cross. Let us pray:

Lord of Everlasting Life, You know our tears and our sorrows. You know our doubts and our fail-ures. You know our sins and shortcomings. Heal us and strengthen us. Forgive us and call us, that we may leave the shadows of despair with the confidence that You walk with us every step of the way. Gracious Savior, help us be children of the Resurrection!
(Let us confess in silence to God the burdens of our hearts)

Hear the Good News! The mercy of the Lord is from ever-lasting to everlasting. I declare to you, in the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven. Thanks be to God.

*Affirmation of Faith

The Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was con-ceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he de-scended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

SACRAMENT OF THE LORD’S SUPPER

Prayers of Thanksgiving and the Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who are 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.
