Eighth Day of Lent
Let our repentance be honest; help us to be honest about
the fact of who we are,
the fact of who you are, and
the fact that our hope is in you.
Let our repentance be genuine; since to repent is to turn, help us to live in light of the fact that our turning needs to be
toward you who loves and accepts us
toward some ideal to which we can never measure up.
Thank you that when we turn to you, you welcome us home and embrace us. Help us to turn constantly to you that we might constantly experience your grace and mercy.
