Forgive our crooked ways-
Forgive us for thinking we are good enough-
Forgive us for normalizing greed,
Arrogance, and self-righteousness.
Forgive us for taking our lives
Out of your hands.
Forgive the ways we demonize our enemies,
Lust after each other, and shout each other out.
Baptize us with fire, make straight our paths.
Let your Kingdom come in power and in glory,
On earth as it is in heaven. Amen.
