Prayer of repentance

Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against thee
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved thee with our whole heart:
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of thy Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we my delight in thy will,
and walk in thy ways,
to the glory of thy Name. Amen.

– from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer
