Start With Prayer 7-Day Challenge

Day 4 of 7 • This day’s reading


Confess Your Sins

Tell Jesus what you did. Place your guilt on the back of your Sin Bearer. Give it to Jesus with this request: “Will you take this away?” Do this as often as needed. One time, two times, ten times a day? By all means! Hold nothing back. No sin is too ancient or recent, too evil or insignificant. Jesus is strong enough to carry it.

Today's Challenge: Confess Your Sins


Lord, your ways are perfect. I cannot fathom the depths of your holiness and love. I'm never going to be perfect, God, but I want to be an example of your kingdom in every moment of my life.

Today, I confess that I ________ and was not a good example of your kingdom. I ask for your forgiveness and your help. When I am tempted and challenged by ______ again, help me remember the truth of Your Word so I can live a life that pleases you.

Thank you for your mercy when I fail. Help me grow stronger and wiser in the time I spend with you. Shape me to be more like you. In Jesus' name, amen.*
