Today, take time to reflect briefly on your sins, confessing them to God in silence.
Merciful God, you know my sins and, yet, you call me and welcome me as your beloved child. Thank you for your boundless compassion and forgiveness. During this season of Lent, turn my heart to you and help me to face those things within myself I have been hesitant or unwilling to face. May I know the depth of your grace in every fiber of my being as I seek to journey to the cross with you. In Christ’s name I pray, AMEN.
Close with the Lord’s Prayer, speaking slowly and deliberately.
