Session 12: Confession (Part 2)
Last week, we began a discussion about the spiritual discipline of confession. Tonight we continue that conversation with an in-depth look at a few prayers of confession in the Bible: Daniel's prayer in Daniel 9, David's prayer in Psalm 51, and Ezra's prayer in Ezra 9-10. These prayers give us an example we can follow when we talk to God and others about the sin in our life. Here's a few of the things we highlighted in these prayers:
1. An attitude of humility.
2. A clear admission of wrongdoing--for oneself and the community.
3. A recognition that discipline is warranted.
4. An appeal to God's love and mercy.
5. A pledge to live a transformed life.
