L I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. (Psalm 51:3-4) Let us confess the ways we have sinned against the Lord.
Silence kept for confession and reflection
L Have mercy, O God, according to your unfailing love;
C Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Do not cast me away from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and sustain me by a willing spirit. (Psalm 51:10-12)
L “This is the covenant I will make with my,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more. (Jeremiah 31:33-34)
