Prompts to Help You Pray

Learn more in our Dawn Treader Magazine

Our prayer is a confession. The Bible teaches us to confess our sins regularly and ask God to forgive us for all the mistakes we make and disobedient acts toward Him that we do regularly, even if they don’t seem very big to the world. It helps us to draw closer to God when we confess and recognize that anything that does not follow His plan for us in completely willing obedience is hurtful to us and others, and something we need to be freed from. Because we will not be completely freed from sin until we get to Heaven, it is a good idea to confess our sins regularly, to remind ourselves that we have been saved and that God is always ready to forgive and help us, every time we go astray.


Dear Lord,
You have said in Your Word that we are like sheep
that have gone astray.
We want to do things our own way and the world’s
way, breaking Your commandments.
I often do things I shouldn’t do,
And don’t do the things I should do.
Please come and find me every time I leave Your
paths of righteousness.
Give me an obedient heart, so that I will always turn
and follow You back again,
For only Your service is perfect freedom.
And thank You for forgiving and restoring
me every time I disobey,
Because Jesus died for me.
In His Name I pray,
