Confession from Psalm 119:17-24

Gracious LORD, you have dealt bountifully with us. We were once blind, but now we see wondrous things in your word. Your commandments were hidden from us because of our willful refusal. Give us continual eyes to behold your glory, even as treasures in jars of clay. We are sojourners in the earth, yet we often live as though we did not have heavenly citizenship. Our thoughts and hopes have been on this world. Forgive us! We come to your mercy seat for refuge and plead the blood of Jesus Christ. Transform us by your Spirit working through your word. Enable us to delight fully in you, we ask through Jesus, amen. (Based on Psalm 119:17-24)
