Said in unison:

God of mercy, hear us as we confess our sin.  Power beguiles us and we deem ourselves worthy.  Our good works convince us that we can assure our salvation.  We heap treasures about us as signs of merit and status, then build elaborate defenses to keep our prizes secure.  Forgive the illusion of our own greatness, and in Christ humble us to receive your reward.
