Merciful God, I thank you for your eternal goodness. I come to you to confess my sins and ask for your mercy. I know that you will not ignore or reject a heart that is humble and contrite. Increase my insight and awareness to know the sins and offenses that I have committed. Grant me the courage to honestly acknowledge my faults before you. And, give me the sincerity to offer a heartfelt contrition, to repent and receive this Sacrament worthily so that I may receive your grace to amend my life. Your great love knows no bounds, O God. I ask that you touch my heart and bring me closer to you, through Christ, Our Lord.
