Confession to an elder or priest is common practice for millions of religious people everyday. The act of speaking aloud our sins, for many, will assist with overcoming its temptations. Psalm 6 is the first of seven penitential Psalms. These passages are reminders of our sinful nature and our need for a savior. They also point to the necessity of confession and repentance from our sin. Recognizing what has pulled us away from God is not enough. We must run from it. Confessing our weakness and our needs to a loving, almighty, Heavenly Father is the start to being delivered from those sins.
