Core truth during Lent

“If we say we have to sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us, but if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  I John 1:8-9

Lord God, I confess that I have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what I have done, and by what I have left undone.  I have not loved you with my whole heart.  I have not loved my neighbor as myself.  I am truly sorry and I humbly repent.  For the sake of your son Jesus Christ, have mercy on me and forgive me, that I may delight in your will and walk in your ways, for the glory of your name.  Amen.
