Gracious and Merciful Father,

 

We come before you to confess our sin as Your redeemed and beloved children. May Your Spirit alone convict us of our sin and remind us of our pardon in Christ through repentance.

 

We confess that we frequently repay evil with evil and reviling with reviling rather than entrusting ourselves to Your love. (1 Peter 3:8-12)

 

We confess that out of fear we often fail to give a reason for our hope and that we often interact with others in anger and disrespect rather than with gentleness and respect. (1 Peter 3:13-17)

 

 

We confess these things before You because You are faithful to forgive us in Christ. Bless us with the assurance of our pardon by Your Holy Spirit in Christ alone by faith alone through Your grace alone from Your Word.

 

Amen
