Confession…ACTS praying

O, God, I’m just an old sinner and too often I’m like Paul who wanted to do right and often did not. I am ashamed when I falter and fail. I now open my heart and soul to you in humble confession. I turn my eyes and heart to you right this moment and ask you to forgive my indiscretions and the things I should have done and said and did not.

Turn me in the right direction in mind, thought, body and spirit, I pray in Jesus’ saving and keeping name. Amen

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. (Proverbs 3:7-8)One who is wise is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is reckless and careless.  (Proverbs 14:16)The highway of the upright turns aside from evil; whoever guards his way preserves his life. (Proverbs 16:17)
