Oh Almighty, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
I and my predecessors and my offspring have sinned and done exceedingly wrong before you.
Your laws have been spurned and cast aside, your priests denied and your dwelling treated as naught.
Your creation has been given no rest and your land is profaned.
Your people no longer know your Law and your Priests no longer know your people.
Justice is treated as wrong-doing and wrong-doings are treated as just.
Knowledge has become base and lawless and laws of men exceed all boundaries.
Men think themselves gods and make mere men their gods. Is there no hope for mankind? Is there no turning back to do right?
I see people whose intents seem good, yet they know you not. Will they get the chance?
Will you remember the Land and remember the Covenant?
Is there yet a remnant left to glorify Almighty God?
Are there yet punishments to be dealt and accepted?
Praise you, oh Almighty God – your mercy gives me hope, although my transgressions are many!
Thank you for Yom Kippur and the yearly cleansing of our souls.
May your established laws and statutes be forever known and kept to make difference between the clean and the unclean and the Holy and the unholy, to show glory to Almighty, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
