Humbly Profess your Sorrow and Shame for Sin

11

We must humbly profess our sorrow and shame for sin, and humbly engage ourselves in the strength of divine grace, that we will be better and do better for the future.

Lord, we repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand, Matthew 3:2(ESV) to which you have exalted your Son, Christ Jesus, to give repentance and forgiveness of sins. Acts 5:31(ESV)

We have heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now our eyes see you; therefore we despise ourselves, and repent in dust and ashes; Job 42:5-6(ESV) therefore will we be like doves of the valleys, each one moaning over his iniquities. Ezekiel 7:16(ESV)

O that our heads were waters, and our eyes fountains of tears, that we might weep day and night for our transgressions, Jeremiah 9:1(ESV) and might in such a manner sow in those tears as that at last we may reap in shouts of joy; may now go out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, and may in due time come home with shouts of joy, bringing in our sheaves with us. Psalm 126:5-6(ESV)

Our iniquities have gone over our heads; like a heavy burden, they are too heavy for us; Psalm 38:4(ESV) but weary and heavy laden under this burden, we come to Christ, who has promised that in him we shall find rest for our souls. Matthew 11:28(ESV)

O knowing the affliction of our own hearts, 1 Kings 8:38(ESV) may we look on him whom we have pierced, and may we mourn and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn. Zechariah 12:10(ESV) That we may grieve after a godly sort, with that grief which produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret; 2 Corinthians 7:10(ESV) and that we may remember and be confounded, and never open our mouths again because of our shame, when you have atoned for us for all that we have done. Ezekiel 16:63(ESV)

And, O that we may bear fruit in keeping with repentance! Matthew 3:8(ESV) and may never again turn back to folly; Psalm 85:8(ESV) for what have we to do anymore with idols? Hosea 14:8(ESV) For sin will have no dominion over us, since we are not under law but under grace. Romans 6:14(ESV)

We have gone astray like lost sheep; seek your servants, for we do not forget your commandments. Psalm 119:176(ESV)
