Prayer for Forgiveness of Sins


This

Prayer for Forgiveness of Sins

page

is written

for those who are saved

and

who want to learn how to receive

God's forgiveness more easily

and

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.

Amen

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,

Amen
