Prayer of Confession:
Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, maker of all things, judge of all people, we confess that we have sinned, and we are deeply grieved as we remember the sinfulness of our past lives. We have sinned against you; Your Holiness and Your love, and we deserve only your indignation and anger. We sincerely repent, and we are genuinely sorry for all wrongdoing and every failure to do the things we should. Our hearts are grieved and we acknowledge that we are hopeless without your grace. Have mercy upon us. Forgive us. Cleanse us. Give us strength to serve and please you in newness of life and to honor and praise your name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
