He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. Isaiah 53:12

For our sake God made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21

Father, in a world where there is so much sin, we humbly bow before your throne, beneath the cross of Jesus, to seek your forgiveness. Help us to forgive others as you forgive us in our times of need. Amen.
