May God bless our Lenten intentions today.
Lord our God, who are of purer eyes than to behold iniquity:
Have mercy upon us, we pray, for our sins accuse us,
and we are troubled by them and put to shame.
We have done wrong to ourselves in ignorance,
and to our sisters and brothers in wilfulness,
and by our selfish and faithless ways have grieved your Holy Spirit.
Forgive us, we humbly pray; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
