Recognizing that we have often stumbled and fallen,
We come to ask your mercy and forgiveness.
Burned by the sun at day and unsettled by the moon at night,
We have often failed you as well as ourselves.
Heal us, O God, and make us whole so we become,
Faithful witnesses of your justice and peace.
In the name of him who was your most faithful witness,
Even Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
