First Steps: Prayer

Prayer: Day 6

Day 6

But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. John 1:9 (NLT)

We’re all sinners, which isn’t news for anyone. In fact, the truth is that we sin frequently. In light of this truth, what do we do? We need to confess our sins to God and turn away from them. When God sees that we are truly sorry for what we have done, He forgives our sins and makes us new again. He makes us pure in His eyes. Prayer is our way of making things right with God. When we turn to Him in prayer, we have the opportunity to come clean before God.

Prayer: Tell God how sorry you are for the things you do that don’t bring him glory. Ask Him to forgive you and to give you the power not to do them again. Make a plan that will help you set yourself up for success, not for failure, as you seek to turn away from your sin.
