L1. Prayer of Confession - Pengakuan Dosa

With faith and hope, let us confess our sin…………….

Let us pray:

When you began to create, O God, you separated the light from the darkness and called it good. We come to you this day, praying that you might separate the darkness in which we hide from the light to which you call us.

      We want to be light, or at least we know deep inside that you want us to be light.

Too often, we live in darkness because it is easier even though we know it is not what you demand of us.

      Create us again. Start us over. Separate us from that which keeps us from living as you intend. Amen


Lord I come to You. Let my heart be changed, renewed

Flowing from the grace, that I found in You.

And Lord I've come to know. The weaknesses I see in me

Will be stripped away, by the power of Your love.

Hold me close. Let Your love surround me

Bring me near. Draw me to Your side.

And as I wait, I'll rise up like the eagle, and I will soar with You,

Your Spirit leads me on, In the power of Your love.

Lord unveil my eyes, Let me see You face to face

The knowledge of Your love, As You live in me.

Lord renew my mind, As Your will unfolds in my life

In living every day, by the power of Your love.


P.   Declaration of Forgiveness - Pemberitaan Pengampunan

The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. In him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness.

      In Jesus Christ we are forgiven! Amen.

P.   Peace - Damai

Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another.

The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

      And also with you. Amen

Trust and Obey NKB 116

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,

What a glory He sheds on our way!

L1. Confession of Faith - Pengakuan Iman

Together with all believers through out the ages, let us confess our faith according to the Apostles’ Creed, saying:

      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 power of 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.
