Said in unison:

Have mercy on us, O God, for sin clings so closely and its burden is great.  Because of sin, our hands are at our sides when they should reach out to others; our knees are shaky when we should be standing firm.  We are victims of our own misdeeds; we cannot escape sin’s weight on our lives.  Through Christ’s intercession lift the burden from us, and help us walk in freedom and in strength.
