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

Amen

God's Great Forgiveness

Lyrics below

"Forgive Me"

Like many water falls I cry,
Like something deep inside has died;
Oh the hurt, the guilt, the pain,
To know I broke Your heart again.

And like a hurricane that blows
A thunderstorm inside my soul;
So can you speak unto the wind
And renew my life again?

Forgive me, I have sinned;
I am guilty of the nails that pierced Your hands,
Oh
I'm cryin' out, purify,

Rid me of this guiltiness I feel inside;
I'm beggin' please - forgive me.

I can't describe what's in my soul,
I feel ashamed to let You know;
Oh the burden, oh the weight
That I've carried from that day.

But You were there, You saw it all,
Every detail, great and small;
And yet You love me just the same,
And You remind me that You came; Lord You came to....

Forgive me, I have sinned;
I am guilty of the nails that pierced Your hands,
Oh
I'm cryin' out, purify,

Rid me of this barrenness I feel inside;
I'm beggin' please.

Create in me a clean heart;
Renew my spirit too.
Restore to me joy, real joy.
Make me more like You, more like You, yeah!

Forgive me, I have sinned;
I am guilty of the nails that pierced Your hands,
Oh
I'm cryin' out, purify,

Rid me of this brokenness I feel inside;
Oh, I'm beggin' please.

Forgive me, I have sinned;
I am guilty of the nails that pierced Your hands;
I know I'm guilty, I'm guilty.


But when I cry out, You purify
And heal me of this brokenness I feel inside;
And faithfully You hear my plea;
You faithfully,
You forgive me.

Jesus You forgive me.
