I Am Free to Turn Away From

Thank you, Lord,  that when I confess my sins to you,  “you are faithful and just to forgive me and cleanse me of all unrighteousness.” (1John 1:9)

"The Lord knows those who are His" and "Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness" 
2 Timothy 2:19

“When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.” Acts 3:26

Titus 2:11-14 says:  "For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope-the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good."

Father, in the name of Jesus, I confess my sins to You. I desire to turn away from anything that does not please You. Thank You that if I confess my sins You are faithful and just and will forgive me and cleanse me from all unrighteousness.  Please heal my body and my soul from any damage caused by my sin.   Help me to have faith that you will continue to shape and mold me to be more like Christ.  I ask for a tender heart to hear Your voice and to be led by Your Spirit. Teach me and guide me so that I will live in ways that are pleasing to You. If I am ever tempted, please help me remember that I can cry out to You for help to resist the temptation and to see the way out.  I pray for grace to say "no" to ungodliness and worldly passions and to live a self-controlled, upright and godly life.  Lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil.  Help me to trust You.  Please fill me with your grace, truth, and love. In Jesus name I pray,  Amen
