Praying from 1 John 3:4 relating to Sin, Lawlessness, Consequences

Dear God, I come before you acknowledging that everyone who sins also commits lawlessness. I confess that I have sinned and fallen short of your glory. I ask for your forgiveness and mercy. Help me to turn away from sin and live a life that is pleasing to you. I pray that you would guide me and strengthen me to resist temptation and walk in your ways. Thank you for your grace and love that covers my sins. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
