Rather than seeking to appear contrite, seek a genuine change of heart. 

Joel 2:13 

And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth Him of the evil.

God Almighty, help us to fulfil that which You have placed in our hearts. 

2 Corinthians 5:20 
So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God. 

No matter how sincere your intentions, are you doing what is right in God’s sight or your sight? #FoodForThought

Deuteronomy 13:13-15 

… You may hear that these people have been saying, “Let’s worship other gods.” (Those gods may be gods you’ve never heard of.) Then make a thorough investigation. If it is true, and you can prove that this disgusting thing has been done among you, you must kill the residents of that city with swords and destroy that city and everyone in it, including the animals, because they are claimed by God.
