I am the sheep who got lost.
I have stepped off the path.
I have missed the mark.
I have damaged relationships.
I have polluted my heart.
I have planted weeds in my mind.
I have downloaded viruses into my soul.
I have wandered away from my Father’s house.
There are stains that I cannot wash clean.
There are moments when I should have spoken up.
There are words that I should never have said.
There are chains that I cannot break.
But I know that your steadfast love is offered despite my wanderings.
I confess, Lord Jesus, that your life, death, and resurrection open a better way to live—with clean hands and a pure heart.
Together we confess, Holy Spirit, that by your presence and power we are renewed in faith and life. Before you, O God, we stand, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen
