PRAYER: Prayer Of Confession, by John Baillie

John Baillie author John Baillie

Almighty God,
Spirit of purity and grace,
in asking thy forgiveness
I cannot claim a right to be forgiven
but only cast myself upon thine unbounded love.
I can plead no merit or desert:
I can plead no extenuating circumstances:
I cannot plead the frailty of my nature:
I cannot plead the force of the temptations I encounter:
I cannot plead the persuasions of others who led me astray:
I can only say, for the sake of Jesus Christ thy son, my Lord.

Amen.
