Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost

Meditation: The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it; for he has founded it on the seas, and established it on the rivers. Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? Those who have clean hands and pure hearts, who do not lift up their souls to what is false, and do not swear deceitfully.
Psalm 24:1-4

Forgive us the sins that we know, and the sins that we know not; forgive them, O Lord, forgive them all because of your great goodness. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

We affirm it. We believe the triumph of God's way is assured. We are building on God’s plan and we believe it reveals the life that God would give to all. We are confident that God will give us enduring worth. We are ready to live and die in Christ’s love for us. Amen.

Bless the Lord, 0 my soul; and all that is within me bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, 0 my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases; who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, who has not spared his own son but delivered him up for us all, and given us all things with him. Therefore, shall my mouth and heart show forth the praise of the Lord from this time forth forevermore. Amen.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
