We have used this prayer written by John Newton a couple of times at FBCN. It’s a simple and beautiful prayer and one that can really help you in your own private prayers of confession.
Dearest Savior! We adore thee,
for thy precious life and death;
Melt each stubborn heart before thee;
Give us all the eye of faith.
From the law’s condemning sentence,
to thy mercy we appeal;
Thou alone can give repentance;
Thou alone our souls can heal.
