O God, our Loving Parent, we have allowed our impatience and sense of entitlement to drive us away from you.  We hear squandered your gifts and goodness, and have allowed our excesses to rob us of life.
We have not acted a your children should.

Receive us back into the arm of your mercy, for our shame and disgrace are more than we can bear.
Help us this day to be reconciled with you and with our sisters and brothers.
Psalm 33: 20-22
Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and shield.  Our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name.  Let your steadfast love,  O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.
