Often, in the midst of frantic lives, we desperately seek the God of all comfort and strength. And yet, this is only one aspect of His character – He is also the God who forgives us. As in Isaiah’s case, understanding our sin and understanding more fully the magnificence of our King and LORD go hand in hand – confessing the one brightens the significance of the other.
From the Book of Common Prayer to Bible verses to contemporary teachers, Confessions of Sin and Assurances of Pardon contains 100 prayers to lead and focus your mind on the problem of sin and God's answer of salvation. Use this resource to enrich Bible studies, devotionals, family worship, or even church services.

In whatever venue it is used, the goal is to draw worshipers to the throne of grace to find grace to help in time of need; that together they may entreat, "Jesus, Lamb of God, have mercy on us. Jesus, Bearer of our sins, have mercy on us. Jesus, Redeemer of the world, grant us peace. Amen" (11). I highly recommend this book for ministers, worship leaders, men, women, girls and boys.
Jesus taught us in the model Lord's Prayer to cry out to God to forgive our sins and give us a heart of forgiveness toward others. Worship that includes regular prayers of confession forms in us a life of repentance. I commend this work where Pastor Griffith has gathered a wealth of prayers from the rich history of the church and from the present day as well.
Confessions of Sin and Assurances of Pardon is, in large part, a collection of excerpts from various Christian traditions, and is an outstanding resource - especially for pastors and those who craft liturgy - to connect their worship communities to the broader Church. I highly recommend this book, and plan to use it liberally in my own context.
Confessions of Sin and Assurances of Pardon: A Pocket Resource is a user-friendly guide to the invaluable and oft-neglected practice of confession, and it is a great help to congregations and individuals looking to draw close to God.
