Heavenly Father, your will for us is that we will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have One who speaks in our defense—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. Father, thank You for your promise – if we confess our sins, You are faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
1 John 2 NIV 1984
