We confess that our hearts are deceitful and only You can understand the depths of our sins. We are full of spiritual infirmities and our sins are frequent. We are a fountain of pollution, and we would be as bad as we could be were it not for your grace. Our minds are buckets without a bottom, with no spiritual understanding, no desire for the Lord’s Day, our consciences are without conviction or contrition; at times we think so highly of ourselves that we feel we have nothing to repent of. And when we do know what we ought to repent, our spirits are so weak, that we flee from Your presence. We are a fading leaf that the wind blows away, were it not for your electing mercy. Lord, teach us to speak the language of repentance. Strengthen us even now as we bring our sins to you and cleanse us by the blood of Your Beloved Son Jesus Christ.
