P: In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen.

P:  God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.
C: If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses  us from all sin.

P: If we way we have no sin,we deceive  ourselves and the truth is not in us.
C: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

P: Let us pray.

C: Almighty God, merciful Father, we are sinful by nature, and have sinned against You in our thoughts words and actions. But we are sorry for our transgressions and pray You, of Your bountiful mercy to be gracious and merciful unto us. Forgive us for Jesus’ sake, renew us by Your Spirit, and lead us in the way everlasting. Amen.

P:  Jesus Christ is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. We are forgiven. With boldness and confidence we may approach the throne to find grace to help in time of need. In the peace of forgiveness, let us praise the Lord.

The Order Of Matins (Hymnal, Page 32)

P:  O Lord, open Thou my lips,
C: And my mouth shall forth Thy praise.

P: Make haste, O God to deliver me.
C: Make haste to help me, O Lord.  Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost: As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever  shall be: world without end. Amen. Hallelujah!

The Scripture Reading – Galatians 4: 1-7 ; 3: 26-29

Though natural-born slaves to sin and outside the family of God, God through His own Son in love adopted us as His dear children by faith and made us full-fledged members of His spiritual family – no matter what our earthly status or standing may be. As children of our heavenly Father, we  receive wonderful spiritual blessings in our hearts and lives and become heirs of all God promises us in eternity. 

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Christian church, the communion of saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body; And the life everlasting. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, Who art in heaven. Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
