Dear God, all my life I have been running from You and pretending that I was good enough to get to heaven and that there was no need for me to worry about sin, because there are so many people who are worse sinners than me.
And yet I realise that I am as much as sinner as every other person, and as much in need of a Saviour as every man or woman that has ever been born - and that all sin is equally bad in Your eyes and the punishment for sin is spiritual death and separation from You for all eternity.
Lord I humbly kneel before You and confess my pride and foolishness – I admit I am a sinner in thought, word and deed and in desperate need of the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ, as my Saviour.
Father I confess that it is only through the blood of the Lord Jesus that my sins can be forgiven – for now I believe and know that Jesus Christ died to pay the price for my sins, to forgive me of my sins – to break the power of sin in my life and to clothe me in His righteousness. Thank You Father for this free gift of grace – and thank You for pursuing me when I was running from you in my pride – thank You in Jesus name,
