A Sinner’s Prayer

Scripture
This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. (1Jo 1:5-8, ESV)

Prayer
Lord, so many times this past week we have walked in darkness. Lord, would you forgive us and deliver us from our sins and have us walk in the light of your countenance. We know that our righteousness is not in ourselves but comes from Christ, and we long to be conformed to His image. Help us to recognize that the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin, not that we may have a free pass to sin, but that we may be free from sin. Help us to walk as Christ walked, in the newness of life that He purchased for us by His death and resurrection. In Jesus name, amen.
