A Prayer of Confession

Based on 1 John 1:8-10

We all sin! No doubt about that. Thankfully, we have a forgiving God Who desires to be in relationship with us. We’re still His son or daughter, but we have to patch up the relationship. This prayer based on 1 John 1:8-10 leads us through a prayer of confession. If you think we need to confess our sins to God, then share this on your favorite social media platform.



Father, I embrace that I have sinned. I understand there remains ungodliness within me. I confess I’m not like You as Your light has revealed this to me. So, Father, I confess my sin before You (Take a moment and confess as many specific sins as you can think of). Thank You that as soon as my confession leaves my lips, then I am forgiven. As soon as the thought of confession crosses my mind…the moment my heart moves toward You in humility, the Holy Spirit is applying the blood of Jesus to my life. I don’t want to say or imply that I’ve never sinned or that I have attained a place of sinless perfection. This would turn You into a liar. It would also hurt my relationship with You and others. So, Holy Spirit, remind me to acknowledge my weakness and failures before the Father and other people. In Jesus’s name, amen.


1 John 1:8-10, NIV

“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”
