DO GOOD DEEDS
Help those in need in any way you can
DO SOME PENANCE
Show you are sorry for your sins.
Oh my God I am very sorry
that I have sinned against you,
but with the help of your grace
I will not sin again.
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love;according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.
Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge.
HAVE MERCY ON ME
Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will turn back to you.
O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
