Almighty God, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ, we are unworthy of Your pardoning grace. For we have not believed Your promises, nor trusted in You, our Living Lord. Through worldliness of spirit, we have not discerned Your presence with us. Through discouragements and disappointments, our hearts have not burned within us as we have heard Your Word. We have not trusted in Your power and have been overcome by evil. We have forgotten the joy of Your victory over death, and ignore the things that belong to our peace. So now in humility, we come to You, asking forgiveness. Mercifully grant us release from all our sins and restore to us the joy of Your salvation, for the sake of Jesus Christ, our risen Lord. AMEN.
