Awake! Why are you sleeping, O Lord? Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever! Why do you hide your face? Why do you forget our affliction and oppression? For our soul is bowed down to the dust; our belly clings to the ground. Rise up; come to our help! Redeem us for the sake of your steadfast love!
Lord, lead me into repentance, into recognition of those things in my life that are not according to Your word, fill me with repentance and contrition, make me and mold me into a vessel of holiness, fit for Your hand to use as You see fit. Lord, I am Yours to do as You will.
