Guilty

Dear God of Forgiveness,

When I was lost and without You, You called me by name and spoke to me with words of mercy, forgiveness, and healing.  You offered me a new life and forgiveness and pulled me from the spiritual death and guilt I was living in.  I will never forget the moment that I recognized how empty my life was without You.

Right now I am struggling to shake off feelings of guilt over my past sins. I know there is a good conviction that leads to repentance.  I also know that you have promised that if I confess my sins, You are faithful to forgive me of all unrighteousness.  I don’t know why You are so loving and gracious, yet You are.  You always keep your promises.

If there is some sin that is still entangling me, I ask for forgiveness and freedom now.  I receive Your spiritual provision in faith, and receive Your promise of forgiveness into my heart and emotions as well.

In Jesus’ merciful name,

Amen.
