Let us pray at this holy season of Lent:
Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

1 We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength:
Lord, have mercy.

2 We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves:
Lord, have mercy.

3 We have not forgiven others as we have been forgiv'n:
Lord, have mercy.

4 We have been deaf to your call to serve, as Christ has served:
Lord, have mercy.

5 We confess our unfaithfulness, our pride, hypocrisy and impatience:
Lord, have mercy.

6 We confess our envy of those more fortunate than ourselves:
Lord, have mercy.

7 For our intemperate love of worldly goods and comforts,
and our dishonesty in daily life and work:
Lord, have mercy.

8 For our negligence in prayer and worship:
Lord, have mercy.

9 For our blindness to human need and suff'ring,
and our indifference to injustice and cruelty:
Lord, have mercy.

10 For lack of charity toward our neighbors,
for prejudice and contempt toward those who differ from us:
Lord, have mercy.

11 For our waste and pollution of your creation,
and our lack of concern for those who come after us:
Lord, have mercy.

12 Restore us, Lord, and let your anger depart from us:
Lord, have mercy.

13 Accomplish in us the work of your creation:
Lord, have mercy.

14 By the cross and passion of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord:
Lord, have mercy.

15 And bring us with all your saints to the joy of his resurrection:
Lord, have mercy.
