Lord, you are just. Your are merciful. You are worthy of honor and reverence. Forgive us for our wandering ways. Forgive us for breaking your laws, disobeying your commands, and for preferring the ways of the world to your will. Today, please remove the detestable things from my heart. Help me to draw near to you and worship only you.
