Part of today's reading from the soul-satisfying daily devotional for Lent, Journey to the Cross,

Almighty God, who knows all and sees all:

We confess our constant striving for righteousness, acceptance, and approval from sources that leave us empty.

We ask your forgiveness, and we renew our hope in Christ alone, who offered Himself to appease your wrath and forgive our sins.

We find all comfort in His wounds, and we have no need to seek or invent any other means to reconcile ourselves with God, than this one and only sacrifice which renders believers perfect forever.

(adapted from the Belgic Confession, article 21)
