Confession of Sin

Our Father, we confess that like sheep, we have all gone astray.  Not one of us by nature is righteous.  Not one of us with our whole heart has sought after you.  We have all turned aside time and again, and together we are tainted by sin.  Our mouths have been filled with curses and bitterness.  Our minds have been gorged with resentment, so that inwardly if not outwardly our feet have been swift to shed blood.  More than once we have lived as if there was no fear of God in our hearts.  If you should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?  None of us.  Not even one!  Please forgive us for Jesus’ sake.  Amen
