2 Corinthians 7

Most merciful, most holy one,
because of the rich promises you gave us,
we have ample motivation to cleanse ourselves
from every defilement of body and spirit
and so making holiness perfect
in the fear of you, our God.

We acknowledge and confess
that often we yield to the sinful self
to do what that old self pleases.

When we stray
work in us such godly grief
as leads to repentance and salvation,
and never brings regret.

Thus we find comfort
in the forgive of sins
and the new life in Christ Jesus,
in whose name we pray.
