Most merciful God, we join our voices in prayer today because we realize that we are united with each other in our sinfulness. We all sin in the same ways and we all sin in ways that are unique to us as individuals. We say and do things that go against your will for our lives. Forgive us for thinking we are better than others. Forgive us for considering others’ sins worse than our own. Forgive us for being so quick to recognize the sin in others, yet slow to see it in ourselves. Grant us the humility of spirit and the gladness of heart that comes from knowing Jesus did to take away the sins of the world. Touch our lives with your healing grace and create in us clean hearts. We pray in Jesus’s name. Amen.
Take Away: Forgive us for thinking we are better than others.
