Eternal and Everlasting God, thank you for being ready to hear our prayers again. We boldly come to the throne of grace seeking mercy because we have fallen short of your Glory. We remained safely silent when we should have spoken on behalf of another again. We ignored the hurt and pain of those around us again. We have spent too much time on our own needs and neglected our relationship with you again. God of compassion and chances, we confess our sins to you. We seek forgiveness and your healing. Wash us again. Cleanse our hearts and minds again. Give us another chance again. Help us to rise above the "again" that so easily besets us today. In Jesus name, Amen.
