When I have a guilty conscience, Merciful God: I’m feeling guilty and my conscience is showing me that it’s time to confess my wrongdoing. I know you are prompting me to seek forgiveness. I’m sorry for the wrong I’ve done. I am so grateful that you don’t shut me out when I pursue me and call me back to your righteous path. Thank you, God, for removing my guilt, restoring my joy, and healing my broken soul.
People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them they will receive mercy. Proverb 28:13.
