Merciful God,
You have been good to us,
but we have not loved you with our whole heart.
Forgive us, Lord.
You call us to return to you, but we fail to listen.
Forgive us, Lord.
You offer us life, but we hunger after that which does not satisfy.
Forgive us, Lord.
You want us to share the Good News about Jesus, but we remain silent.
Forgive us, Lord.
You command us to show mercy,
but we walk away from people in need.
Forgive us, Lord.
You teach us what is right, but we tolerate injustice and sin.
Forgive us, Lord.
