Prayer of Conviction

God of my salvation, thank you for the conviction of the Holy Spirit affirming Your work in me to cleanse me and restore me to the joy of Your salvation. Be gracious to me, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. I will teach transgressors Your ways, that others will be converted to You. Open my lips, O Lord, that my mouth may declare Your praise. In Jesus’ name, amen. (Taken from Psalm 51)
