Opening Hymn – The Church’s One Foundation
M: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you. Amen.
C: And also with you.
M: Our Lord Jesus walked the road to Emmaus with his disciples who were downcast in their spirits and lost in their doubts. That we may approach God’s throne of grace let us confess our sins and downtrodden spirits to him that he may lift up our hearts in peace and forgiveness:
C: Merciful Father in heaven, I am altogether sinful from birth. In countless ways I have sinned against you and do not deserve to be called your child. But trusting in Jesus, my Saviour, I pray: Have mercy on me according to your unfailing love. Cleanse from my sin, and take away my guilt.
M: Our risen Lord appeared to break bread with his disciples and to show them with many convincing proofs that he was alive. He did this to teach us he has worked forgiveness of sins, life and salvation. By his perfect life and innocent death he has removed your guilt forever. And he has risen to give us certainty that we are God’s own dear children. Forgiven of your sins, may God give you the strength to live according to his will.
