Almighty Father, have mercy on us.

We have not sought freedom for the oppressed, even though you freed us.

We have not bound up the broken even though you healed us.

We have not forgiven others even though you forgave us.

We withhold kindness from the needy even though you freely gave us your own Son.

We are without excuse, but not without hope.

By your power and grace, account our sins to Jesus’

bloody death and amend our ways by the power of his glorious resurrection.

Amen.
