Our Father, we confess that the corruptions of our hearts have routinely ensnared us. We admit that our greatest temptation is most often within our own souls. We are grieved that our feelings are so dull, our thoughts so lowly, our affections so foolish, our expressions of gratitude so scarce, our lives so inconsistent, and our hearts so hard. We are but sinful dust. Yet too often we act as if we are worthy of praise and better than others. Pierce our pride and keep us mindful of our sinful state and fallen condition as you stir up the hope of our heavenly home. Forgive our sins through the blood of Jesus. Amen.
