Our Father in heaven:
We confess to you that we
have strayed from your holy Word.
We have not loved you sufficiently.
We have not served you resolutely.
We have not loved our neighbor as ourselves.
Yet you are a God of forgiveness.
You scatter sin “as far as the east
is from the west” (Ps 103:12).
You restore those of lowly and contrite hearts.
Examine our priorities, our ambitions,
our attitudes. Reveal wherever they are contrary to
your will. Remove every impediment to holy obedience
in order that we may “walk in a manner worthy of the
calling that we have received” (Eph 4:1);
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
