‎"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; And there is no health in us. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare thou them, O God, who confess their faults. Restore thou those who are penitent; According to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesu our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, To the glory of thy holy Name. Amen."

I love this prayer so much. It really shows us exactly where we have gone wrong. The lines where it says "we have erred and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep and followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts" is just a complete summary of the state of Humanity today. I believe that by working with this prayer we can begin to find our way back to true Humanity or else face the conseuences of the current and impending repercussions when we dont find our way back to the Almighty Creator.

Thank you so much for posting this prayer.
