Not only does it wipe away your sins, but it can also help you establish a power relation to Allah.

We cherish our Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) once spoke to his uncle Abbas (RA):

“Oh Uncle, shall I not give you, shall I not grant you, shall I not award you, shall I not do mercy on you; When you do ten things Allah will forgive your sins, of future and past, new and old, those you have forgotten and those you did knowingly, big and small, hidden and revealed.”

Then he (PBUH) taught him how to pray Salat ul Tasbih and said to offer this salah once a day.

If not once a day, then every Friday, and even if this is not possible, then once a month, and even if this is not possible then once a year, and even if this is not possible, then at least once in a lifetime. (Abu Dawood and Tirmidhi)
