If we acknowledge our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from every wrongdoing. – 1 John 1:9
Abba Father, we acknowledge that we have been beneficiaries of your immeasurable compassion, through endless ages and will continue in times to come. With gratefulness in our hearts, we exalt your Holy Name to the heavens. Your works are so magnificent that they are beyond the comprehension of us, mere mortals. Your love for us exceeds through the ages, stretching across all boundaries and your promises are true and unshakable. You shower us with loving kindness, which gives us strength and fills our hearts with exultant hope.
You are the God of Righteousness, for you have never abandoned us, knowing our weaknesses and susceptibility to sin. You sent your Son Jesus Christ, the Anointed Messiah and promised Saviour, whose sacrificial death paid the price for our sins and whose glorious resurrection transferred us from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of Light and Truth, making us a new creation in Christ, clothing us in His own righteousness and sending His Holy Spirit to permanently indwell our heart.
Father, we have the assurance of eternal life in Christ Jesus, if we remain true to your new covenant of love of God and neighbor, living in total obedience of your Holy Will and Word. We are truly penitent and in great humility, confess our sinfulness, walking in the Spirit, and bearing witness to our Christian faith. We pray that by fervently avoiding evil and seeking your mercy and justice when we err, we can become recipients of your grace, partaking of our heavenly inheritance as your children, through Christ our Lord. Amen
