Father, forgive us our sin. O Lord, forgive us the sin of our ages and the sins of our youth; the sins of our souls and the sins of our bodiesand our secret and our whispered sins we have done to please others. O Lord, forgive them all. Through thy great mercy let us be absolved of all our offenses. Pardon and deliver us from all our iniquity. Cleanse us from all sin through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
-- Pastor Joe C. Scott Sr.
