For our “50 Days of Prayer at a Calvary Chapel”

“I have sinned.” So states one of the most effective—and one of the most difficult—prayers recorded in the Bible. Pride hates to admit weakness, and arrogance dislikes acknowledging shortcomings. Just ask Adam and Eve. Rather than owning their sin, Adam blamed God and Eve blamed the serpent. But God knew the truth (Genesis 3:8–13). I have found that when God convicts us of sin, the easiest thing to say is “yes.” Silence, excuses, rationalization, and deflection don’t work. Forgiveness comes through confession. – Dr. Dave Earley
