Deepening Prayer -
Out of the depths we cry to God, in our suffering and in our pain. Out of the depths God cries to us, asking us to repent, to return to the divine with our whole hearts, to admit our weakness, and to accept forgiveness. So let us pray, first in silence, then aloud.
Silent Prayer -
Holy God, hear our prayer:
For the mending of our hearts, torn apart by our unkindness;
For the healing of our souls, wasting away from the despair around us;
For the forgiveness we seek for the sin we have allowed to persist;
For the reconciliation of the world, whose division condemns us;
We pray for the courage to admit our fault,
The strength to amend our actions,
And the calm knowing that your grace awaits us.
Through Christ we pray.
