Prayer for Forgiveness of Sins

This Prayer for Forgiveness of Sins page is written
for those who are saved
who want to learn how to receive God's forgiveness more easily
those who want to increase their closeness with the Lord.

If you are not saved - we  have a Prayer for Salvation page.

Many of us have asked God to forgive us of sins but

we still struggle to receive God's forgiveness.

God forgives us the first time we ask him.

We are forgiven the very first time we ask.

We are set free.

Yet, sometimes it takes a little longer for us to accept the forgiveness God freely gives. Meaning: We still drag around the guilt with us.

The first prayer:

Merciful Lord,

Day after day, the ocean stays in the boundaries you have set for it.

Day after day, I go outside the boundaries you have set for me.

The reasons vary, but the result is always the same. I sin and fall short of the glory of God.

Lord, I am here at your throne, desiring your forgiveness. I thank you for your mercy that is always ready to reach out to me. I confess my sins and I receive your abundant pardon.

Lord, I ask for a fresh new motivation to follow your will and your ways. May my words and actions this day be pleasing in your sight.

Next Prayer for Forgiveness of Sins:

Lord of Endless Love,

Forgive me for reigning on your throne yesterday.

I can't change the past, but I can transcend it

by your love and grace.

In Jesus' Name I pray,
