Prayer of Confession – John Wesley


O merciful Father,
do not consider what we have done against you
but what our blessed Savior has done for us.
Do not consider what we have made of ourselves,
but what He is making of us for you our God.
O that Christ may be “wisdom and righteousness,
sanctification and redemption”
to every one of our souls.
May His precious blood may cleanse us from all our sins,
and your Holy Spirit renew and sanctify our souls.
May He crucify our flesh with its passion and lusts,
and cleanse all our brothers and sisters in Christ across the earth.
In Christ’s name we pray, Amen.

— John Wesley
