Almighty God, thank you that you are gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. I confess to you with my whole heart that I have neglected and forgotten your commandments. My actions, words and thoughts have hurt others. O God, forgive me and raise me to newness of life through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Almighty God, have mercy on me, forgive my sins, and bring me to everlasting life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
