We confess that sin has turned our hearts and minds upside down. We treasure the worthless but disregard the things of most value. We are preoccupied with the trivial but apathetic in matters of importance. We disobey with ease and bravado while our obedience is marked by hesitancy and cowardice. We seek our own good but walk a path that leads to our destruction.
Merciful Father, please forgive us and change us. Turn our hearts and minds around so that we will long for Jesus -- the one who men rejected, but in whom is hope and light and life eternal.
