Father, it is easy to forget that we are wicked, stubborn, rebellious and corrupt.
We have provoked you, turned aside quickly and done what is evil.
We have not believed and we have not obeyed;
Instead we have constructed an idol to satisfy our hearts.
We have become proud and self-sufficient,
When we are made to be dependent, loved, righteous, upright
and in covenant relationship with you.
Keep us remembering who we are.
Dependent on your mediation.
Humble and close to you;
Our Saviour and our Lord.
