Before beginning, take three deep breaths.
Lord, you call us to repent and to turn toward you that our “sins may be wiped out.” Wiped out. Like with an eraser. Like a computer hard drive wiped clean, never to be recovered. In short, our sins will be gone. Search our hearts that we might see where we’ve sinned, that we might turn toward you, and receive beautiful forgiveness from you, the fount of all love, grace and mercy. In Jesus’ name we pray, AMEN.
Close with the Lord’s Prayer, pausing between each phrase.
