Father, we are sorry for the many times we have left you and chosen to satisfy our own selfish desires.
For the times we have hurt the members of our families by refusing to do our share of the family tasks.
For the times we were unkind and impatient with those who needed our time and concern.
For the times we were too weak to stand up for what was right and allowed others to suffer because of our cowardice.
For the times we refused to forgive others because vengeance felt better than love.
Father, we have sinned. Forgive us in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
