ORDER OF SERVICE
¶A Hymn may be sung.
¶ The Minister shall say:
N the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Beloved in the Lord! Let us draw near with a true heart, and confess our sins unto God our Father, beseeching Him, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to grant us forgiveness.
Almighty God, our Maker and Redeemer, we poor sinners confess unto Thee, that we are by nature sinful and unclean, and that we have sinned against Thee by thought, word, and deed. Wherefore we flee for refuge to Thine infinite mercy, seeking and imploring Thy grace, for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ.
¶ All shall say with the Minister:
MOST merciful God, Who hast given Thine Onlybegotten Son to die for us, have mercy upon us, and for His sake grant us remission of all our sins: and by Thy Holy Spirit increase in us true knowledge of Thee, and of Thy will, and true obedience to Thy Word, to the end that by Thy grace we may come to everlasting life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Minister shall say:
our heavenly hath had
mercy upon us, and hath given His Only Son to die for us, and for His sake forgiveth us all our sins. To them that believe on His Name, He giveth power to become the sons of God, and bestoweth upon them His Holy Spirit. He that believeth, and is baptized, shall be saved. Grant this, O Lord, unto us all. Amen.
¶ The Gloria Patri shall be said after the Psalm. ¶The Minister shall say the following Prayer, or the Prayer of the Season.
BLESSED Lord, Who hast caused all Holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of Thy holy Word, we may embrace, and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which Thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
¶ All shall say 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.

A Hymn may then be sung.
MERCIFUL Father in heaven, Who holdest in Thy hand all the might of men and of Whom is all rule and authority in the kingdoms of the world: We humbly beseech Thee, graciously regard Thy servant, N.. the President of the United States, and all others in
authority over us, that, having received the sword as Thy ministers, they may bear it according to Thy commandment, and lead our Nation in the way of righteous
Let Thy protection be upon all those who are in the service of our Country, guarding them and us from all harm and danger of body and soul; sustain and comfort those at home in their hours of loneliness and anxiety; prepare the dying for death and the living for Thy service; give success to our arms on land and sea, and grant us and all nations a speedy, just and lasting peace, to the glory of Thy Name and the coming of Thy Kingdom; through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. Amen.
¶Here may be said other Prayers. All shall say:
UR Father, Who art in heaven; Hallowed by 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, for ever and ever. Amen.
¶Then may follow a Hymn and the Service shall close with Silent Prayer.
