Prayer of Confession
(based on Psalm
1 3 9: 1-4, - 2 3 ) 2 4
You have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
you discern my thoughts from far away.
You see me when I walk or lie down,
you know every detail of my conduct.
Even before a word is on my tongue,
O Lord, You know it completely.
So examine me, and know my heart, O God;
test me and know my thoughts.
See if there is any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way that leads to eternal life.
