Righteous LORD, your rules are right and good. You are utterly faithful in your righteousness, consistent and proven. We confess that we have sinned against you, and are unrighteous without your mercy and forgiveness. We should be like you, yet our righteousness is inconsistent. Our love for you is hot and cold, not perfectly faithful. Forgive us for the sake of our Savior, your Son, whose zeal for the church consumed his life. He is the King of Righteousness, who lives forever, and whose resurrection from the dead signaled our justification. Give us life in him, we ask, amen. (Based on Psalm 119:137-144, Tsade)
