O God, our Father,
Forgive us for our many sins.
We are easily captivated by the objects that our eyes desire.
You have given us your most cherished treasure, yet we prize many other things more highly than Christ.
We fall so often, and when we do, we run and hide in shame instead of running to you to confess our sin and find joy and forgiveness in the cross.
Forgive us for trusting in our own strength more than in his power to save us completely.
Holy Spirit, fill us with everlasting wonder that the gospel is true.
When we are tempted to sin, remind us of Christ, who kept all your laws for us, and fix our eyes on him.
Whether we give in to temptation or resist, show us Christ, our only hope for the perfect obedience that we require to stand before you.
Cause us to cherish Christ above all our other desires, so that we will be satisfied in him for all eternity.
In his name we pray,
