THE PRAYER OF REPENTANCE

 

We repent, O God Most Merciful; for all our sins; for every thought that was false or unjust

 

or unclean; for every word spoken that ought not to have been spoken; for every deed

 

done that ought not to have been done.

 

 

We repent for every deed and word and thought inspired by selfishness, and for every

 

deed and word and thought inspired by hatred.

 

We repent most specially for every lustful thought and every lustful action; for every lie; for

 

all hypocrisy; for every promise given but not fulfilled, and for all slander and backbiting.

 

 

Most specially also, we repent for every action that has brought ruin to others; for every word

 

and deed that has given others pain; and for every wish that pain should befall others.

 

 

In your Unbounded Mercy! We ask you to forgive us, O God! for all these sins committed

 

by us, and to forgive us for our constant failures to think and speak and act according to

 

Your Will.
