From Romans 3 and Psalm 143

All have sinned and have fallen short of the gkory of God.

O Lord, hear our prayer
as we cry for your mercy;
in your faithfulness and righteousness
come to help us.
Do not bring us to judgement,
for no-one is innocent before you.
Answer us now, Lord;
do not hide yourself from us,
show us the way we should go,
rescue us from our enemy.
Teach us to do your will,
and by your good Spirit
lead us in a safe path,
for your name's sake. Amen.
