The Ten Commandments
 And God spoke all these words, saying,
 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
 “You shall have no other gods before me. (ESV)
Call to Worship
 Make haste, O God, to deliver me!
O LORD, make haste to help me!
 Let them be put to shame and confusion
who seek my life!
Let them be turned back and brought to dishonor
who delight in my hurt!
 Let them turn back because of their shame
who say, “Aha, Aha!”
 May all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you!
May those who love your salvation
say evermore, “God is great!”
 But I am poor and needy;
hasten to me, O God!
You are my help and my deliverer;
O LORD, do not delay! (ESV)
Prayer of Confession
O our God, we are ashamed to lift our faces to you, for our iniquities have risen higher than our head, and our guilt has mounted up to the heavens. To us belongs open shame, because we have sinned against you. But you are a God ready to forgive. Let us be justified by your grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Jesus Christ. Let us have the blessedness of those whose transgressions are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; of that man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
