Said in unison:

Forgive our vain repetitions, O God of mercy, for our deeds do not match our words of belief.  We mouth pious slogans but fail to correct injustice.  We claim to be righteous, while practicing bigotry and rejecting others.  We glory in your gifts that bring success or comfort, yet we deny neighbors their right to prosper.  Help us to confess Christ risen for all people, and forgive our failure to translate faith into action.
