“Dear God beyond all praising, you are blessed. We confess this day that we do not deserve your blessing. We have not kept our way pure. We have not guarded ourselves according to your Word. Instead, we have let the words of the world, the flesh, and the devil speak to our hearts. Forgive us for Jesus’ sake! Blot out our transgressions, and let us not wander from your commandments. Teach us, and give us a heart that loves to be taught by you. Transform us to love and delight in you and your law. Thank you that Christ died for our sins. We find in him all our delight, more than riches. He is the pearl of greatest price. We pray in his name, amen. “

(Based on Psalm 119:9-16)
