I appeal to Your mercy, oh God, through Jesus Christ…
 Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
I am a sinner, oh God, I am a sinner but I appeal to your mercy through Jesus Christ: Forgive me.
 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!  For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.  Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.
I deserve the full force of your wrath for I have sinned against Your holy law and commands but I appeal to Your mercy through Jesus Christ: Wash me clean.
 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.
I am a sinner through and through, even from my birth.
 Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.
Through You and You alone can I know the way of true Life. Teach me, oh God, that I may know true wisdom. Teach me that I may stay on the narrow path and not stray from You.
 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.  Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice.
Restore me, cleanse me, wipe my slate clean. Oh God, grant me a second chance.
 Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
I appeal to Your mercy through Jesus Christ: Forgive me.
 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.  Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Place a new heart in me, oh Sovereign God as I appeal to Your mercy through Jesus Christ: Forgive me and grant me a joyful heart once again.
This is my confession; this is my appeal; this is my plea to you, oh God. I echo these words from the psalmist and seek to be placed back into a right relationship with you. So I lay it before you and wait…
 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.  More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. (Romans 5:10-11 ESV)
Through faith in Jesus Christ I am forgiven?
PRAISE BE TO GOD!
