Confession And Petition

“HOLY LORD,

“I have sinned times without number,
and been guilty of pride and unbelief,
of failure to find thy mind in thy Word,
of neglect to seek thee in my daily life.

“My transgressions and shortcomings
present me with a list of accusations,

“But I bless thee that they will not stand against me,
for all have been laid on Christ

“Go on to subdue my corruptions,
and grant me grace to live above them.

“Let not the passions of the flesh nor lustings
of the mind bring my spirit into subjection,
but do thou rule over me in liberty and power.
