Said in unison:

God of consuming fire, treat us not as stubble through the folly of our misdeeds.  We are misled by arrogance as we boast of our goodness; we look with disdain on those less fortunate, and ignore the poverty of our own souls.  Claiming to be among the mighty, we favor those gifted with similar strengths.  As individuals and as a nation, we test your patience.  Yet in Christ you love us still.  Forgive our pride and restore our sanity, so that we may yet serve you.
