Are you nervous or anxious about going to confession? Don’t be! Prayers before Confession (also known as the Sacrament of Penance or the Sacrament of Reconciliation) can put you in the best frame of mind to unburden yourself of your sins when you go into the confessional.  We have some selections we hope might help, including a prayer from St. Jerome and one from St. Gemma Galgan i .

This prayer appeals for Heavenly assistance and this one asks for Jesus’ help directly in making a good confession. (Remember, as our Lord told his disciples once in John’s Gospel (15:5) “I am the vine you are the branches…. without me you can do nothing .”). We also wish to offer these short prayers on our Aspirations page  and these prayers below you can say before Confession as well. This first one asks for the help of the Holy Spirit in being able to discern our sins and to feel genuinely sorry for them.

O Holy Spirit. Source of all light, Spirit of wisdom, of understanding, and of knowledge, come to my assistance and enable me to make a good confession. Enlighten me, and help me now to know my sins as one day I shall be force to recognize them before Thy judgment seat. Bring to my mind the evil which I have done and the good which I have neglected. Permit me not to be blinded by self-love. Grant me, moreover, heartfelt sorrow for my transgressions, and the grace of a sincere confession, so that I may be forgiven and admitted into Thy friendship.

Anne Askew (née Ayscough , Ascue ; married name Anne Kyme ; 1521 – 16 July 1546) [1] was an English writer, poet, and Protestant martyr who was condemned as a heretic in England in the reign of Henry VIII of England . She is the only woman on record known to have been both tortured in the Tower of London and burnt at the stake . She is also one of the earliest-known female poets to compose in the English language and the first Englishwoman to demand a divorce (especially as an innocent party on scriptural grounds). [2]

Anne Askew was born in 1521 in Lincolnshire, England. William Askew , a wealthy landowner, was her father. William was a gentleman in the court of King Henry VIII, as well as a juror in the trial of Anne Boleyn's co-accused. [3] Her mother was Elizabeth Wrotessley, of Reading, Berkshire. Askew was the fourth of their five children, which included her brothers Francis and Edward, and sisters Martha and Jane. She also had two stepbrothers, Christopher and Thomas, by her father's second wife Elizabeth Hutton. [4] She was also related to Robert who led the Pilgrimage of Grace . [5]

William Askew had arranged that his eldest daughter, Martha, be married to Thomas Kyme. When Anne was 15 years old, Martha died. Her father decided Anne would take Martha's place in the marriage to Thomas to save money. [6]

Bible verses about Self Examination
( From Forerunner Commentary ) Even the most honest person cannot see himself as others do, for which we should be thankful. Each person is blind to certain parts of his character even when he is most brutally honest with himself, such as during the annual self-evaluation Christians conduct before Passover . Even God in His mercy reveals issues and problems to us only as we can handle them ( I Corinthians 10:13 ). Yet, we must consider how myopic we are about ourselves in comparison to how we see others in our families, in our congregations, in other churches of God, or even in the world.

Exodus 12:12-14 Why should a Christian keep the Passover ? We should keep the Passover because God commands us to. This, of itself, is good enough reason, but there is much more!

God has us keep the Passover because it forces us to consider the deaths of the firstborn Egyptians and how that miraculous and terrible event led to the freeing of Israelites from Pharaoh and from Egypt. It should lead us to think deeply about what these events symbolize.
