All: Most merciful Father, we have sinned against you and are guilty before you.
Pastor: Forgive us the sins of our tongues—
All: For the deception and untruthfulness in our dealings with others; for the
resentments, coldness, impatience and tempers out of control.
Pastor: Forgive us the sins of our eyes—
All: For impurity in our glances and imaginations; for hungering after more
beauty, comfort, status and wealth than you have given us.
Pastor: Forgive the sins of our hearts—
All: For hard-heartedness toward you and our neighbors; for pride, self-absorption and self-pity; and above all, for rebelling against your Lordship and doubting your love.
Forgive us we pray, most merciful Father, and free us from our sin.
