God forgive our failure to speak to every person we meet about the gospel.

God forgive our lack of godliness and holiness and our love for the present world.

God forgive our selfish ambition and our pursuit of carnal passions.

God forgive our brotherly love grown cold.

God forgive our neglect of prayer and the Word.

God forgive our erratic discipleship, wobbling back and forth between submission to the Lord and our own stubborn wills.

God give us repentance from our willful ways, faith to follow in the darkest days, discipline to forge ahead, courage to speak truth and challenge error, love and fear for your holy name, devotion to the way of life eternal.
