‘O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner’  (Luke 18:13; NLT).

For the law never made anything perfect. But now we have confidence in a better hope, through which we draw near to God (Hebrews 7:19; NLT).

…let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings (Hebrews 10:22; NIV).

If only I were sinless,
I would approach you
With such confidence –
But that will never
Be the case.

I must rely on your mercy,
And on having faith
That despite my sinfulness,
You unfailingly allow me
To draw near.
