Day 25: His Repentance

If we confess our sins,
He is faithful and just
to forgive our sins and to
cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
- I John 1:9

Lord, I pray that You will convict my husband of any error in his life. Let there be "nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known" (Matthew 10:26). Cleanse him from any secret sins and teach him to be a person who is quick to confess when he is wrong (Psalm 19:12). Help him to recognize his mistakes. Give him eyes to see Your truth and ears to hear Your voice. Bring him to full repentance before You. If there is suffering to be done, let it be the suffering of a remorseful heart and not because the crushing hand of the enemy has found an opening into his life through unconfessed sin. Lord, I know that humility must come before honor (Proverbs 15:33). Take away all pride that would cause him to deny his faults and work in his soul a humility of heart so that he will receive the honor You have for him.*

(I think I need this prayer for myself as well. Read back through this prayer again, substituting "me" for "him".) 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
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
try me, and know my anxieties;
and see if there is any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the everlasting.
- Psalm 139:23-24

And the Lord's servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
- II Timothy 2:24-26
