Prayer of Confession: Dark Recesses

Our lives, O Lord, are open to you—
All our sins in dark recesses,
All we say and think and do,
Our virtues, plans, and wild excesses.

We lay our sins before the Cross,
We glory not in our successes;
Pleasure is vain, and liberty, loss:
Each penitent saint mourns and confesses.

Say amen. Ask for prayers. Give thanks.
