I come to You with the deepest confession, my Lord and my God. I am so far from where I want to be. I am far too easily distracted by the inner struggles which hinder Your perfecting work in me, Jesus. Give me a pure and contrite heart for that is what pleases You. Even though I fall short and my sin is ever before me, the beautiful fragrance of Your grace chases away the stench of death and selfishness. Only Your mercy can turn the ugliness of sin into the beauty of forgiveness. Only the power of Your love can resolve my personal injury. Turn my proud heart into a penitent heart. Take my shaky confession, Lord; and cleanse me from my guilt. Let me dance beneath the fat raindrops of heaven’s glory once again. I pray to be a vessel fit for holy contents. Make me a true servant of the Kingdom until forevermore. Under the beauty of the Word of the King in 1 John 1:9 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in prayer.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9, NIV
