Lenten Prayer

We will be reading this prayer of confession on Easter morning at church. It's such a great reflection on the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus made for us. Pray this with me...

Oh God, my Heavenly Father, as I have come today to celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of your Son and my Savior, I come in confession of my sins. For as I am reminded of the horrible and painful price paid for my salvation, I am humbled and regretful for I know it was for my sins that Christ, the Messiah, died upon the cross. And I am thankful that you, Father, delivered him from the grave and gave me an empty tomb to demonstrate that power of sin was once and for all destroyed. I thank you that you chose me, unworthy as I am, to receive forgiveness of my sins. I pray through Christ, my resurrected Lord, Amen.
