Reform Us - A Litany for Lent 1

O God, we come to this time of worship to seek your presence but also your forgiveness for what we have done and what we’ve left undone. We pray that you will reform our minds, hearts, and actions and mold us into evermore faithful disciples of Jesus.

In the ways we think of others as less than ourselves,

Reform us, O God.

In the ways we pre-judge others according to appearance,

Reform us, O God.

In the ways we seek our own comfort at the expense of others,

Reform us, O God.

In the ways we excuse our own behavior because we don’t want to admit we’re wrong,

Reform us, O God.

In the ways we need to reach out to help rather than withhold what we could share,

Reform us, O God.

O God, reform us today, and every day by your Spirit. Amen.
