Faithful Father, you are the God who redeems and rescues his people. When I am overwhelmed with shame, help me look to you. You have said that you will settle the matter – though my sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are as red as crimson, they shall be like wool. Remind me that I have been purified by you, the curse of sin no longer has any hold on me. Though I stumble, you do not fail to forgive. May my life be filled with praise to you. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
