Confession of Sin

This week's Confession of Sin. May it stir your heart to holiness.
Our Father, you are the infinite and eternal God who knows all things. You are mindful of our thoughts and acquainted with our purposes. No secret thing is hidden from your sight. All our imaginations are laid bare before you. We have sinned by giving thought to and savoring in our minds things that are wicked and depraved. Often our affections to be enslaved by evil desires. Our hearts have been the source of countless transgressions. Your good and holy law we have broken within while trying to look religious without. There is no excuse for our hypocrisy. By nature no good thing dwells in us. Apart from your grace our souls are desperately evil and incurably sick. Please forgive us for Jesus’ sake.
