Prayer of Confession 

Most merciful God,

I confess that I have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed,

by what I have done, and by what I have left undone.

I have not loved you with my whole heart;

I have not loved my neighbor as myself.

For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ,

have mercy on me and forgive me,

that I may delight in your will and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your name.   AMEN.
