Holy Father, remove all the sin that binds and oppresses us: anger, disgust, envy, hatred, lust, pride, and greed, the root of all evil. And cleanse our hearts of all unrighteousness. Create in us a clean heart, O Lord, and renew in us a sincere and willing spirit. Teach us your ways, and give us grace so that we may walk within them until the end of our days. Amen.

“Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.” (Psalm 51:7, NLT)
