Dear Lord, 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. Be merciful to me, my sin has grieved Your heart. And strengthen my resolve from evil to depart.
Do not leave me without a portion of the blessed eternity. Grant also that I may follow Thy Holy example, that I may submit to the authorities placed over me. Grant me the clean soul, the simplicity of heart that makes us worthy of Thy love.
Hold me in the palm of Your hand. I pray that You will mold me into what You want me to be. May I joyfully fill the role You have given to me and feel Your peace deep in my soul, today and always.
