Prayer, Principle 5A. Confession-2B Doctrine of Confession 1C Confession



The Meaning of Blessing for Persecution:

It is a prayer to accept the offenses others show toward me because of the trust I have in

God, so that I can have the fullness of joy that was set before Jesus in His persecution (Heb 12.2).


From the Prayer Notebook:

Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.

5A. CONFESSION – As I have kept short sin-debts by immediate confession of sins You have revealed, I now pause to examine my heart further for wrong attitudes. As You convict, I will once again make confession of my sin and remember it's results.

Matthew 5.3-10 "Blessed are..."

1B. THE BEATITUDES – Lord, help me... have your attitudes about life.

1 JN 1.6;PS 66.18;JA 1.15; PS 19.12-13

1 John 1:6

If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

Psalm 66:18

If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear.

James 1:15

Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

Psalm 19:12-13

Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. [13] Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, And I shall be innocent of great transgression.

2B. The Doctrine of CONFESSION – Today I agree with You LORD that I have failed in the particular way(s) that You have revealed to me. Now I...

1 JN 1.9 1C. CONFESS – that _____* was a sin in Your eyes because You said _____+.

*=specifically name the sin. +=name the scripture bringing awareness.

The Doctrine of Confession can be greatly expanded, but for this discussion we will merely turn to the single verse that describes most of this doctrine, 1Jn 1.9.

1 JN 1.9 1C. CONFESS – that _____* was a sin in Your eyes because You said _____+.

*=specifically name the sin. +=name the scripture bringing awareness.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

confess= 3670 omologew homologeo {hom-ol-og-eh'-o} from a compound of the base of 3674 and 3056; AV - confess (17) - profess (3) - promise (1) - give thanks (1) - confession is made (1) [23] 1) to say the same thing as another, i.e. to agree with, assent 2) to concede 2a) not to refuse, to promise

Confession is agreeing with God's attitude about sin– it is abominable to Him. The ATTITUDE produces the confession, and the forsaking of the sin.






I will confess a sin God has brought to my mind today here: _________________________________





God forgave and cleansed me, in that _____________________________________________________
