A Lenten Collect to Confess When We Have Wronged

Gentle Lord, who knows the thoughts and intentions of our hearts, give us the courage to confess our sins and to admit when we have wronged others, that those sins would not smolder in our souls and burn us, but we would find peace with you and with one another, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who took on our sin and ascended to you in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘I will get up and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you.”‘ – Luke 15:18
