Day 5 | We Confess This prayer of confession seeks to openly renounce sin and receive Jesus’ promised mercy and grace. It borrows language from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer.Almighty Father, Since we have a great high priest, Jesus your Son, We approach your throne of grace with confidence, Knowing that we will receive mercy, And find help in our time of need. We confess our sins to you because you are faithful and just, And will forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We confess that we have sinned against you In thought, word, and deed, By what we have done, And by what we have left undone. We have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep. We have offended your holy and good laws. We have followed too much The devices and desires of our own hearts. Of these things, we humbly repent. Forgive us now, According to your promises in Christ Jesus, That we may delight in your will, And walk in your ways, To the glory of your name.
