"Because of the sacrifice of your Son, wipe away all our transgressions. Do not bring us to judgment. Let Christ be the guarantee of our salvation as the one who has restored on our behalf things he never took away. Let him be the one mediator between us and yourself who has laid his hand on both of us. Let us be fully reconciled to you through him. Let the record of chargeable offences that testifies against us be wiped clean. Let it be nailed to the cross of Christ. Forgive all our sins, that we may be brought to life together with him. O Lord, show us the abundance of your mercy, and never remember our sins and iniquities again." Psa. 51:1; 143:2; Heb. 7:22; Psa. 69:4; 1 Tim. 2:5; Job 9:33; 2 Cor. 5:20; Col. 2:13-15; Heb. 8:12.
