how does he know?

First-term Senator David Vitter is the first high-profile elected to get publicly, uh, fingered in the so-called “DC madam” scandal. Vitter, who has previously attacked “the Hollywood left” for undermining marriage, had this to say in his defense:

This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible. Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife. . . .

Now, I can’t speak for his wife, but when it comes to God. . . .

Seriously, I’m not a big pray-er, and have never been to confession, but as best I understand, don’t you ask God for forgiveness, and continue to pray for His forgiveness—isn’t that how it works? How does Vitter know he has “received forgiveness from God”? Isn’t that a little presumptuous?
