When We Trust in Our Own Self-Righteousness
Lord, with humbleness and anguish I come to you today over my sin. Against you have I sinned. I beat my chest in anguish asking that you forgive me of my sinfulness. I am made to face my own sin. How ugly and unloving I have been toward others. Have mercy on me and forgive me O God of my Salvation. Thank you Lord for loving me. Thank you for allowing me to see just how vile of a person I can be. God, be merciful to me a sinner. The more I try to live right before your eyes, the more I feel as though I fail. I pray that today, while it is still called today, that my prayer of repentance is pleasing to your ears. I pray that my prayer of humility over my sin is a pleasing aroma to your nostrils. Thank you Lord for giving your Son to take my place on the cross. Thank you for holding my life in your hands. It is in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
