Gracious Lord, you have shown us great mercy and compassion.
You desire for us to love you with all of our hearts, minds, and strength, yet we continue to love ourselves more than you.
You have provided for our needs in great ways, yet we have not been content with your blessings, instead we are often jealous of what you have given to others.
Forgive us for our failures to care for those who are suffering, for treating the gifts of heaven as if they were unimportant, and for our neglect of your gracious law.
Help us to hate our sins enough to turn from them.
Through Christ, our Lord we pray.
