At the end of the week, take some time to breathe deeply before beginning to pray.

Holy One, we hear that people confessed, ceased their former practices and began to walk in the ways of the Lord.  And we know that we are also in need of confession – of help in stopping our sinful ways and instead following your ways.  May we increase our understanding of how we need grow and may we realize with deep gratitude the tremendous gift of grace you have given to all humanity.  May others around the world turn from their sins and instead, turn to face you.  In Jesus’ name we pray, AMEN.

Close with the Lord’s Prayer, pausing after each line.
