“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. (ESV)
Call to Worship
 Give ear, O my people, to my teaching;
incline your ears to the words of my mouth!
 I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter dark sayings from of old,
 things that we have heard and known,
that our fathers have told us.
 We will not hide them from their children,
but tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might,
and the wonders that he has done. (ESV)
Prayer of Confession
Almighty God, You have raised Jesus from death to life, and crowned Him Lord of all. We confess that we have not bowed before Him, or acknowledged His rule in our lives. We have gone along with the ways of the world, and failed to give Him glory. Forgive us and raise us from sin, that we may be Your faithful people, obeying the commands of our Lord Jesus Christ, who rules the world and is head of the Church, His Body. In His name we pray, amen.
