My own misery and danger because of sin.

For the sake of your name, O LORD, forgive my iniquity, though it is great. Psalm 25:11(NIV) For troubles without number surround me; my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see. Be pleased, O LORD, to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me. Psalm 40:12-13(NIV)

O do not hold against me the sins of the fathers; may your mercy come quickly to meet me, for I am in desperate need. Help me, O God my Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver me and forgive my sins for your name’s sake. Psalm 79:8-9(NIV)

Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O LORD. Psalm 25:7(NIV)

The blessed condition which they are in whose sins are pardoned.

O let me have the blessedness of those whose transgressions are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; of that man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and in whose spirit is no deceit. Psalm 32:1-2(NIV)

O let me have redemption through Christ’s blood, even the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of your grace that you have lavished on me with all wisdom and understanding. Ephesians 1:7-8(NIV) That being in Christ Jesus, there may be no condemnation for me. Romans 8:1(NIV)

That my sins, which are many, being forgiven me, Luke 7:47(NIV) I may go in peace: Luke 7:50(NIV) And no one living in Zion will say, “I am ill,” if the sins of those who dwell there are forgiven. Isaiah 33:24(NIV)
