Father, You are light. There is no darkness in You, at all. And as You are holy, You call us – as Your children – to be holy also.
But forgive our hypocrisy! We say we love You, yet we still do the things You hate. We say we love Your presence, yet we make little effort to draw near.
We say we love Your Son, yet we fail to love His Body, the Church. Forgive us, O Father. As You are light, help us also to walk in the light!
Grant us fresh repentance! Give us deep sorrow for our wicked ways! Groom us to be children after Your own heart!
Our hope is Christ, and Christ alone. He is our Satisfaction before You. He is our Righteousness. In His name we pray, amen.
