Weekly Confession: October 23rd

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 are not moved to prayer by Your Word (Daniel 9:1-3).

 

We confess that we fail to invoke Your attributes and confess our sin based on a true knowledge of who You are and who we are (Daniel 9:4-14).

 

We confess that we don’t seek mercy and forgiveness for Your name’s sake (Daniel 9:15-19).

 

We confess that we struggle to rest secure in Your promise to put an end to sin and to atone for iniquity, bringing in everlasting righteousness (Daniel 9:20-27).

 

We confess all of 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.
