There is a beautifully written prayer in the Anglican/Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. It is a prayer to be said for the Confession of sins…”Almighty and most merciful Father; we have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done………….”
As is written in Psalm 119:176 “I have strayed like a lost sheep. Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten you commands.
Thank you for hearing the cries of this lost sheep…..
