Gracious God, thank you for your everlasting love, unmerited grace and mercies that miraculously arrive with the rising of the sun. What joy it is that we can confess our sins and you are faithful to forgive to forgive us of our sins. Help us to forgive those closet to us, especially when our hearts don't want to and our faith demands it.
Forgive us when we have failed to live up to the talents and gifts you have given us. Forgive us when we tried but didn't try hard enough. Forgive us when we were shortsighted on mole hills we thought were mountains uncrossable.
Thank you for forgiving us. And now Lord, help us to forgive ourselves. In Jesus name, Amen.
