Prayer for March 1

Have mercy upon us, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercies,
blot out our transgressions. Wash us thoroughly from our iniquity, and cleanse us from our sin. For
we know our transgressions, and our sin is ever before us. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and put
a new and right spirit within us. Cast us not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit
from us. Restore to us the joy of your salvation, and uphold us with a willing spirit. Through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.
