PRAYER FOR PARDON AND MERCY
Out of the depths I cry to Thee O Lord; Lord hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive to my voice in supplication:
If You, O Lord mark iniquities, Lord who can stand? But with You is forgiveness that You may be revered.
I trust in the Lord: My soul trusts in His word. My soul waits for the Lord more than sentinels wait for the dawn.
More than sentinels wait for the dawn, let Israel wait for the Lord, for with the Lord is kindness and with Him is plenteous redemption; and He will redeem Israel from all of their iniquities. Glory be...etc.
