O Lord, I descend from many generations of sinners and was conceived in sin. Not only is my nature to sin, but my sinfulness has given birth to many actual transgressions. I have often rejected Your holy law and refused correction. I have provoked Your Spirit and followed my own selfish desires. I have not feared You as I ought and have been slow to return to You even as You called. I have frequently hardened my heart and provoked You, and yet You have shown me much mercy and kindness.
22 Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
24 "The Lord is my portion," says my soul,
"Therefore I hope in Him!"
