Yet even now, says the LORD,
return to me with your whole heart,
with fasting, and weeping, and mourning; Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the LORD, your God. For gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and relenting in punishment.
(Speak to God, using this prayer or a prayer of your own.)
God of kindness and mercy, your constant love for me is beyond my understanding. Help me to grow in a desire to return to you confidently, with all my heart.
