S’LICHOT (adapted for Gentile Christians)
Almighty One, You are slow to anger,
and You are called the Ruler of mercy,
and You have taught the way of return.
In the greatness of Your mercy and Your kindness,
may You remember this day and every day
the offspring of Your beloved ones
Turn to us in Your mercy,
for You are the Ruler of mercy.
With supplication and prayer
we approach Your Presence,
In the righteous and name of your Son
Jesus Christ our redeemer
In the shadow of Your wings may we find shelter and dwell,
as on the day when Adonai descended in a cloud.
Give heed to our cry and hear from us our declaration,
You Adonai, are our Lord
Adonai, Adonai, Almighty One, compassionate, and gracious,
slow to anger, and abundant in kindness, and truth,
preserver of kindness for thousands of generations,
Forgiver of iniquity, willful wrongdoing, and error, and who absolves.
May You forgive our iniquities and our wrongdoings and make us Your heritage.
Forgive us our Father for we have erred,
pardon us our Sovereign for we have willfully erred.
For You Adonai are good and forgiving,
and abundantly kind to all who call upon You.
Forgive please the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of Your kindness
to whom be glory both now and to the day of eternity.
Incline, my Elohim, Your ear, and listen,
open Your eyes and see our troubles,
Watch over and Jerusalem your Holy City we pray,
for not because of our righteousness do we cast our supplications before You,
but because of Your compassion which is abundant.
Adonai heed, Adonai forgive, for we are all your children.
Save Lord those trapped in the darkness of sin,
Shine your light and truth upon them.
may Your mercies swiftly advance to meet us,
for we have greatly become impoverished.
Please do not remember the misdeeds of our youth and our iniquities
We are not worthy of your kindness
Yet for the sake of your goodness and Your Name
You remember you love us, with an everlasting love.
The Lord bless us, and preserve us from all evil,
and keep us in eternal life.
