We call on the name of our risen Lord, who forgives our sins.
As our time of accompanying Christ to Easter is nearing its end, let us call upon God’s mercy.
As our Lord Jesus Christ prayed to the Father, we pray for our salvation.
God loves us and wishes only to save us. We pray with confidence in God's compassion.
We know the ways of God. We ask forgiveness for when we do not follow them.
We place ourselves before the mercy of God for the times we have not trusted in God's guidance.
God renews the earth. We pray to take our part in that renewal.
We acknowledge our faults before the Lord, who takes away our sins.
We turn to you, Lord, who gathers and guides us in your wisdom.
My sisters and brothers, we pray to hear God's voice in our lives.
