Let us confess our sins to God Heavenly Father.
We confess that we have sinned against you and our neighbor.
We have walked in darkness rather than light.
We have named The Name of Christ, but have not followed him have mercy on us for the sake of Jesus Christ.
Forgive us our sins and bring us to True repentance amen.
Here is good news for all who put their trust in Christ.

Let us sing the hymn appointed for today by the Methodist prayer handbook.
It's number 419 in singing the faith 419 almighty God.
We come to make confession almighty God.
We come to make confessions, forgive us Lord and meet us selfish actions.

Are you forever and ever amen? Psalm 51 have mercy on me, o God, according to your steadfast love, according to your abundant Mercy blot out, my transgressions Wash Me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin for I know my transgressions and my sin is ever before me against you.
You alone have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are justified in your sentence and blameless when you pass judgment.
Indeed, I was born guilty a sinner.
When my mother conceived me, you desire truth in the inward being.
Therefore, teach me wisdom in my secret heart me with hyssop and I shall be clean.
Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.
Let me hear joy and gladness.
Let the bones that you have crushed rejoice, hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities.

O Lord open my lips and my mouth will declare your praise, for you have no Delight in sacrifice if I were to give a burnt offering you would not be pleased.

I will not be afraid.
What can anyone do to me? Remember your leaders, those who spoke the word of God to you, consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings, for it is well for the heart to be strengthened by Grace, not by regulations about food which have not benefited those who observe them.
We have an altar from which those who officiate in the tent have no rights to eat for the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest as a sacrifice for sin are burned outside the camp.
Therefore, Jesus also suffered Outside The City Gate in order to sanctify the People by his own blood.
Let us then go to him outside the camp and bear the abuse he endured for here we have no lasting City, but we are looking for the city that is to come through him.
Then let us continually offer a sacrifice of praise to God.
That is the fruit of lips that confess his name.
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have for.
Such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God blessed, be the Lord, the god of Israel, who has come to his people and set them free.

The dawn from on high shall break upon us to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Glory to the father and to the son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning, is now and shall be forever amen.
