Day 27: Walking in Repentance

They looked to Him
and were radiant
and their faces were not ashamed.
- Psalm 34:5
Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed,
and get a new heart and a new spirit.
- Ezekiel 18:31
Lord, I pray that You would give David and Elizabeth a heart that is quick to confess their mistakes. May they be truly repentant of them so that they can be forgiven and cleansed. Help them to understand that Your laws are for their benefit and that the confession and repentance You require must become a way of life. Give them the desire to live in truth before You, and may they say as David in the Bible did, "Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit in me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation" (Psalm 51:2, 10-12).
Lord, bring to light any hidden sins so they can be confessed, repented of, and forgiven. Your Word says, "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered" (Psalm 32:11). I pray that my son and daughter will never be able to contain sin within them, but rather let there be a longing to confess fully and say, "See if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting" (Psalm 139:24). May they not live in guilt and condemnation, but rather dwell with a clear conscience in the full understanding of their forgiveness in Christ. I pray that they will always look to You and wear a radiant countenance. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.*
He who covers his sins will not prosper,
but whoever confesses and forsakes them
will have mercy.
- Proverbs 28:13
Repent therefore and be converted,
that your sins may be blotted out,
so that times of refreshing may come
from the presence of the Lord.
- Acts 3:19
