Forgiving God, You are the only one to whom we can turn with full confidence.
In trust we confess to You, our fumbling and stumbling, our stalling and falling, our hurtfulness and our heartlessness.
Our achievements in doing good deeds are many, but they seem to be outnumbered by failures and indifference.
Please continue to save us from ourselves.
Forgive all our sins, rinse away our shame, and lift us out of apathy.
Give us the confidence born of Your grace in Christ Jesus, and enable us by faith to live boldly and joyfully.
We pray through Christ Jesus our Lord.
