Confession of Sin

Jay Forrest

Most merciful God, 
we confess that we have sinned against you 
in thought, word, and deed, 
by what we have done, 
and by what we have left undone. 
We have not loved you with our whole heart; 
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. 
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. 
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, 
have mercy on us and forgive us; 
that we may delight in your will, 
and walk in your ways, 
to the glory of your Name. Amen.

[A deacon or lay person says:]

Almighty God have mercy on us, 
forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, 
strengthen us in all goodness, 
and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. 
Amen.
