Confession

Hear our prayer, O Lord,
and listen to our groaning,
for we acknowledge our iniquities,
and lay open our sins before you.
Against you, O God, have we sinned.
To you we make our confession
and ask forgiveness.
Turn your face again, Lord,
to your servants you redeemed
with your own blood.
Spare us,
pardon our sins,
and extend to us your loving-kindness
and your mercy. Amen.
