I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord.' Psalm 122:1 Confession of Sin
Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation. And so that we may prepare ourselves in heart and mind to worship him, let us kneel in silence, and with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.or this
Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.
Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.
*A deacon or lay person using the preceding form remains kneeling, and substitutes 'us' for 'you' and 'our' for 'your.'
Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. AmenThe Invitatory and Psalter Officiant:

Jubilate Psalm 100
Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with gladness and come before his presence with a song.
Know this: The Lord himself is God;
he himself has made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and call upon his Name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his faithfulness endures from age to age.
The following Antiphon may be sung or said
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: Come let us adore him.
Deliver me, O LORD, from evil men; Preserve me from violent men, (2)
Who plan evil things in their hearts; They continually gather together for war. (3)
They sharpen their tongues like a serpent; The poison of asps is under their lips. Selah (4)
Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; Preserve me from violent men, Who have purposed to make my steps stumble. (5)
The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords; They have spread a net by the wayside; They have set traps for me. Selah (6)
I said to the LORD: 'You are my God; Hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD. (7)
O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, You have covered my head in the day of battle. (8)
Do not grant, O LORD, the desires of the wicked; Do not further his wicked scheme, Lest they be exalted. Selah (9)
As for the head of those who surround me, Let the evil of their lips cover them; (10)
Let burning coals fall upon them; Let them be cast into the fire, Into deep pits, that they rise not up again. (11)
Let not a slanderer be established in the earth; Let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him.' (12)
I know that the LORD will maintain The cause of the afflicted, And justice for the poor. (13)
Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name; The upright shall dwell in Your presence.Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
I cry out to the LORD with my voice; With my voice to the LORD I make my supplication. (2)
I pour out my complaint before Him; I declare before Him my trouble. (3)
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, Then You knew my path. In the way in which I walk They have secretly set a snare for me. (4)
Look on my right hand and see, For there is no one who acknowledges me; Refuge has failed me; No one cares for my soul. (5)
I cried out to You, O LORD: I said, 'You are my refuge, My portion in the land of the living. (6)
Attend to my cry, For I am brought very low; Deliver me from my persecutors, For they are stronger than I. (7)
Bring my soul out of prison, That I may praise Your name; The righteous shall surround me, For You shall deal bountifully with me.'Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
Now when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he did not go as at other times, to seek to use sorcery, but he set his face toward the wilderness. (2)
And Balaam raised his eyes, and saw Israel encamped according to their tribes; and the Spirit of God came upon him. (3)
Then he took up his oracle and said: 'The utterance of Balaam the son of Beor, The utterance of the man whose eyes are opened, (4)
The utterance of him who hears the words of God, Who sees the vision of the Almighty, Who falls down, with eyes wide open: (5)
How lovely are your tents, O Jacob! Your dwellings, O Israel! (6)
Like valleys that stretch out, Like gardens by the riverside, Like aloes planted by the LORD, Like cedars beside the waters. (7)
He shall pour water from his buckets, And his seed shall be in many waters. 'His king shall be higher than Agag, And his kingdom shall be exalted. (8)
God brings him out of Egypt; He has strength like a wild ox; He shall consume the nations, his enemies; He shall break their bones And pierce them with his arrows. (9)
He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?' 'Blessed is he who blesses you, And cursed is he who curses you.' (10)
Then Balak's anger was aroused against Balaam, and he struck his hands together; and Balak said to Balaam, 'I called you to curse my enemies, and look, you have bountifully blessed them these three times! (11)
Now therefore, flee to your place. I said I would greatly honor you, but in fact, the LORD has kept you back from honor.' (12)
So Balaam said to Balak, 'Did I not also speak to your messengers whom you sent to me, saying, (13)
If Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go beyond the word of the LORD, to do good or bad of my own will. What the LORD says, that I must speak'? The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors -- not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. (13)
For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. (14)
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. (15)
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, 'Abba, Father.' (16)
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, (17)
and if children, then heirs -- heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Then the Pharisees went and plotted how they might entangle Him in His talk. (16)
And they sent to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, 'Teacher, we know that You are true, and teach the way of God in truth; nor do You care about anyone, for You do not regard the person of men. (17)
Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?' (18)
But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, 'Why do you test Me, you hypocrites? (19)
Show Me the tax money.' So they brought Him a denarius. (20)
And He said to them, 'Whose image and inscription is this?' (21)
They said to Him, 'Caesar's.' And He said to them, 'Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.' (22)
When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left Him and went their way. The Gospel of the Lord.
Thanks be to God. Canticles can be prayed or sung after each reading or after all readings.
10 The Second Song of Isaiah       Quaerite Dominum
Seek the Lord while he wills to be found; *
call upon him when he draws near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways *
and the evil ones their thoughts;
And let them turn to the Lord, and he will have compassion, *
and to our God, for he will richly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, *
nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, *
so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as rain and snow fall from the heavens *
and return not again, but water the earth,
Bringing forth life and giving growth, *
seed for sowing and bread for eating,
So is my word that goes forth from my mouth; *
it will not return to me empty;
But it will accomplish that which I have purposed, *
and prosper in that for which I sent it.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
The Apostles' Creed *Officiant and People together, all standing
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen. The Prayers *The People stand or kneel Officiant :

We bless you for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; but above all for your immeasurable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.
And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies, that with truly thankful hearts we may show forth your praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives, by giving up ourselves to your service, and by walking before you in holiness and righteousness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.
Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication to you; and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will be in the midst of them: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting.
