Leadership Prayers: How Does a Leader Pray When He Sins?

1. Why did David feel guilty? 2 Samuel 11,12
2. Since we were forgiven when we became Christians, why would we feel guilty today? Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:8
3. How many times do we need to ask God to forgive us of a particular sin? Count the petitions in Psalm 51 where David confesses his sin and asks God to remove it.
4. After a child of God has sinned, how are repentance, confession, forgiveness, joy, praise, and sacrifice (obedience) connected? Psalm 51:10-19; 1 John 1:5-2:6
5. When David prayed his prayer of confession, how did God answer Him? Psalm 32
6. What are the connections between forgiveness, confession, prayer, protection, and deliverance? Psalm 32:3-7; 1 John 1:5-2:2
7. How has God promised to answer our prayers? 1 John 5:14,15
8. Pray for forgiveness and continual cleansing from a forgiving and holy God. Continue to ask as much and as often as you need. Thank God for Jesus and His blood that cleanses us and the peace, boldness, and joy that comes from the answer to that prayer.
