The Invocation

P: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

C: Amen.

Our Lenten Expression Of Repentance & Faith

C: Lord Jesus, in this holy season, Your living and powerful Word penetrates to the very depth of my soul. With the probing instrument of Your holy Law, You expose my sinful heart and life, convicting and condemning me. Yet with the powerful and permeating Gospel of redemption you also come to me – assuring me of forgiveness and peace through Your saving merit. In repentance and faith I now come to You, O Lamb of God, looking to the cross alone. Forgive me, strengthen me and renew me for Your Name’s sake.

The Absolution

P: Lent brings us the assurance from heaven that “God has seen the suffering of His Son and is satisfied” (Isaiah 53:11). “Be of good cheer, your sins are forgiven you” (Matthew 9:2).

Our Lenten Creed (Luther’s Explanation To The 2nd Article)

      I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true Man, born of the virgin Mary, is my Lord. He has redeemed me, a lost and condemned creature, purchased and won me from all sins, from death and from the power of the devil – not with gold or silver, but with His holy precious blood and with His innocent suffering and death. All this He did that I should be His own and live under Him in his kingdom, and serve Him in everlasting righteousness, innocence and blessedness. Just as He is risen from death, lives and rules to all eternity. This is most certainly true.
