Drawn from Psalm 143
Hear my confession, O LORD; pay attention to my desire for mercy! In your faithfulness, deal graciously with my unfaithfulness. You alone are righteous. Do not enter into judgment against us, for no one living is righteous before you. Because of my sin and my enemy Satan, who always slanders and accuses your children, I have hit rock-bottom. I am exhausted and appalled at the thoughts and intentions of my own heart. God, have mercy. Yet, I remember all you have done for us. The work of your hands that redeems by the precious blood and righteousness of Jesus Christ. Our souls thirst for water as in a dry land. Cleanse and refresh us, O LORD. Amen.
