I am presently hoping (God willing) to be chrismated next year; however, since I haven't yet obtained to that state, I am not able to go to sacramental Confession. I pray at home, but I usually say the morning and evening prayers, as well as some others. Are there other prayers I should add, until such time as I am able to fully partake in the sacrament?

Thank you for any help.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

There are a number of prayers that can be used to confess your sins to God. Here is one, I forget where I found it, and you can insert any of the particulars that you wish to seek help overcoming.

O Lord our God, good and merciful, I acknowledge all my sins which I have committed every day of my life, in thought, word and deed; in body and soul alike. I am heartily sorry that I have ever offended thee, and I sincerely repent; with tears I humbly pray thee, O Lord: of thy mercy forgive me all my past transgressions and absolve me from them. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy Grace, to amend my way of life and to sin no more; that I may walk in the way of the righteous and offer praise and glory to the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

And FWIW, these are our Fathers too, you know.

Just as an fyi, in the little red prayer book it says to read this prayer and then psalm 50 (51) after preparing for confession.

Let us the faithful now come together to praise our father, protector and teacher the pillar of the Orthodox faith and firm defender of piety even the wondrous hierarch Philaret and let us glorify our Saviour Who has granted us his incorrupt relics as a manifest sign of his sanctity.
