What do we mean by continuous confession before God?

Share |

By continuous confession before God we mean, that we are always before God, and confess that we are continually guilty of all sins, even those of which we are unaware; we pray for forgiveness and in faith accept forgiveness on the basis of God’s promises of grace, even though omeone else does not proclaim it to us. In other types of confessions, a person is also before God.

Ps. 32:5: I acknowledged my sin unto Thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord, and Thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.

Ps. 19:12: Who can understand his errors? Cleanse Thou me from secret faults.
