Almighty and merciful God,
we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.
We have followed too much
the devices and desires or our own hearts.
We have offended against your holy laws.
We have left undone those things which we out to have done;
and we have done those things which we ought not to have done.
O Lord, have mercy upon us.
Spare those who confess their faults.
Restore those who are penitent,
according to your promises declared to the world
in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
And grant, O merciful God, for his sake,
that we may live a holy, just and humble life
to the glory of your holy name. Amen
