My Confession

I am not Catholic, but I want to confess my sins regardless formally; thus, I will confess the sins that I have committed throughout my lifetime.

Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.

I accuse myself of the following sins: I have engaged in premarital sex; I have taken the Lord’s name in vain; I have lied; I have dishonored my mother and father; I have not kept the Sabbath day holy; I have to; I have born false witness against a neighbor; I have coveted something of a neighbor; in addition, I have broken Christ’s two great commandments (1 Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 2 Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.).

I also ask forgiveness for all the venial sins that I have committed during my life.

O my God, I am heartily sorry for offending thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishment. Most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all-good and deserving of all my love.

I firmly resolve, with the help of thy grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.


Thanks be to God.
