Daniel 9:20 While I was…confessing my sin…
O Lord, lead me in each day to examine my thoughts, words, and actions. As I do, I see they fail to measure up to your standard of excellence (perfection). Therefore, humble me before you so that I don’t try to deny them or justify them, but rather that I confess them to you. As I confess my sins give me confidence that they are forgiven because of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Living with that confidence, lead me each day to honestly confess my sins before you. For in doing so you keep me grounded, you keep me humble, you keep me relying on you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
