My friends, we turn now for forgiveness to the God who delivers us.
Scripture today will speak of approaching the throne of God not in fear but confidently to receive mercy and find grace to help us. With that hope we turn to God to ask forgiveness.
To help us become closer followers of Christ, we confess our failings to our merciful God.
We ask for mercy from our God who forgives us without limit.
With love for God’s commandments and remorse for our sins, we turn to the Lord for forgiveness.
In a spirit of repentance for our sins, we place ourselves in the hands of our merciful God.
My sisters and brothers, the walk of faith can be a difficult one. Let us ask forgiveness for the times we have stumbled or lost heart.
In prayer we call upon God to strengthen us in our following of the way of Jesus.
Let us ask for God’s mercy and pray to God to make us better disciples.
That we may grow in holiness, we ask God for forgiveness.
