Prayer of Confession

This week, John Hopler will be teaching on the "Prayer of Confession."

Sometimes we hesitate to confess our sin.   We reason that God already knows everything, even our sin, so what is the point of our verbalizing it?

Confession is an acknowledgement of the consciousness of our sin before God.   Psalm 51 was written by King David as a prayer of confession in response to the prophet Nathan confronting him on his sin.
