Prayer Of Confession

 

Almighty and most merciful Father, we are erred and strayed from your ways. We have wandered like lost sheep. We have sinned against your Holy laws by thought by word, and by deed. We have selfishly followed the desires of our own hearts. Have mercy upon us and forgive us for offending the Holy laws.

 

We have left undone those things we ought to have done, and we have done things we ought not to have done. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us. Spare those, O God , who confess their faults. Restore us O Lord.

 

Have mercy upon us, O God, according to thy loving-kindness; according to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out our transgressions. Wash us thoroughly from our iniquities, and cleanse us from our sins. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sins is ever before me. Create in me a clean heart O God, and renew a right spirit within me through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Heavenly Father forgive me for what I have been, help me to amend my way; and in thy Spirit direct what I shall be; that thou mayest come into the full glory of thy creation, in me, and in all men; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
