Prayers after Confession

O almighty and merciful God, I truly thank you for the forgiveness of my sins; bless me, O Lord, and help me always, that I may ever do that which is pleasing to you, and sin no more. Amen.

O Lord God of my salvation, the savior and benefactor of my soul, I am truly sorry for my every transgression and I firmly resolve never again to offend you by my sins, and sincerely promise to amend my way of life. Implant in me the fear of your blessed commandments, that I may trample down all carnal appetites and may lead a godly life, both thinking and doing such things as are well-pleasing unto you. I pray you, grant unto me the grace of your Holy Spirit, that thus strengthened, I may shun all evil deeds, works, words and thoughts, and may avoid all the snares of the evil one. Shine in my heart with the true sun of your righteousness, enlighten my mind and guard all my senses, that walking uprightly in the way of your statutes, I may attain unto life eternal. Amen.

O sovereign Master, who loves mankind, lead me in your way, that I may walk in your truth. Make glad my heart, that I may fear your holy name. O Lord, mighty in mercy and gracious in strength, aid, comfort and save me, as I put my trust in your holy name. Rebuke me not, O Lord, in your displeasure, neither punish me in your wrath, but show unto me your great mercy and compassion, O physician and healer of my soul, O merciful Savior, blot out all my transgressions, for I am heartily sorry for having offended you. Grant me your grace that I may avoid my previous evil ways. Strengthen me, O mighty one, to withstand those temptations before which I am weak, that I may avoid all future sin. Keep me under your protection and in the shadow of your wings, that I may serve you, praise you, and glorify you all the days of my life. Amen.
