Every Monday, I run a series on this blog that bring written prayers that I have found encouraging.  It is my hope these written prayers will help encourage you at the start of each week and they might draw you closer to Jesus.  You can find the whole collection here.

We confess, merciful God that we have let ourselves be enslaved to our selfish egos.  We have expected to find your favor because of our good works instead of relying on your grace alone.  Forgive us and reform us to know again the freedom you offer through your perfect pardon.
