Have mercy upon us, o God, according to Thy loving kindness; according to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out our transgressions.
Wash us thoroughly from our iniquities, and cleanse us from our sin. For we acknowledge our transgressions, and our sin is ever before us.
Create in us clean hearts, o God, and renew a right spirit within us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.
(Psalm 32:5 ESV)
I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
