Prayer for 1 John 1:10

“If we say, "We have not sinned," we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”

Praying through 1 John 1:10

Heavenly Father, how I praise and glorify Your holy name that my sins are forgiven by faith in Christ, and that I can enjoy sweet fellowship with You. I confess I have no righteousness of my own and do not deserve to receive Your grace and favour. But thank You that my hope rests on Christ. Dear Father, too often I find myself allowing fleshly tendencies to influence my life choices. Forgive me for the times I have left my first love, behaved arrogantly, or failed to listen to Your gentle promptings. Restore to me the joy of my salvation. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
