Heavenly Father, there is no one like you in all creation. You are above reproach. You are the adjudicator of our guilt, and you are righteous and just. Forgive me when I fail you, Father. I come humbly in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1 John 1: 8-10 ESV)
