Repentance Frees Us

Hands folded together resting on a Bible


When the ache of our conscience reminds us that we are not right with God, may humility lead us to repentance. For all the ways we have fractured our relationships with God and others, we offer this prayer.


God of love, I have sinned and grieved your heart,
but I no longer want to live in hiding.
Take my sorrow and straighten my path.
Lead me into the freedom that repentance brings,
so I may live wholly full of love.


Focus on just one specific sin of which you repent. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you one action you can take today to right the wrong that was done.
