Confession, Need Or Trial

When Guilty Or Pressured

Lord, the problems and pressures of life overwhelm me. My sin is always with me. The temptations of the world follow me wherever I go. By my own strength alone I cannot resist them. But you, Lord, are righteous and holy. In your great love and mercy make me righteous and holy, too. For Jesus sake take away my guilt and failure. Give me the joy that comes from being your forgiven child. Renew in my heart the love that makes me eager to do your will and devote my life to your glory. If I were ever without you I would be lost. But because of your promise to be with me always, I will trust in you. I will cling to your Word and put my hope in your grace. Father, hear my prayer. Amen.
