A Lenten Collect to Bring Our Sins to the Light

God of light and truth, from whom no deed is hidden, draw us out of the darkness, that our sins and failings might be seen clearly and in that exposure find forgiveness and healing in your gracious love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who loved us to the end and now reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in glory forever and ever. Amen.

“For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.” – John 3:20-21
