“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you. (ESV)
Call to Worship
 Remember this, O LORD, how the enemy scoffs,
and a foolish people reviles your name.
 Do not deliver the soul of your dove to the wild beasts;
do not forget the life of your poor forever.
 Have regard for the covenant,
for the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence.
 Let not the downtrodden turn back in shame;
let the poor and needy praise your name.
 Arise, O God, defend your cause;
remember how the foolish scoff at you all the day!
 Do not forget the clamor of your foes,
the uproar of those who rise against you, which goes up continually! (ESV)
Prayer of Confession
Our Father in Heaven, we have known the way of the Lord and the justice of our God, and yet have followed the way of sin. We know that the law curses everyone who does not abide by all of it, that the wages of sin is death, and that because of these the wrath of God is coming. But you have said that if we confess our sins, you are faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. So Lord, we do confess, and we plead for your forgiveness and your cleansing. Amen.
