Confession of Sin

Dear Heavenly Father, we bow before You to confess

that we have sinned against You in our words, actions and our thoughts.

We come to ask Your forgiveness and to seek Your great mercy.

We come to You in the merits of Jesus Christ, not our own.

Look not upon our sins, or our iniquity, but wash us in the

blood of Jesus Christ so that we may be clean before You.

This we pray in His Name, Amen.
