Want To Be Forgiven

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please forgive me.  I have been walking away from You.  I know that You offer me forgiveness through Jesus Christ and that His blood and sacrifice have covered over and removed the guilt of my sin.  I am so sorry for my sin and need your forgiveness.

Lord, I know that it isn’t by good works that I am saved from my sin, but that it is a gift that You offer to me.  I want and need your forgiveness so bad.  I trust in Christ and Christ alone to forgive my sins and cleanse me from all unrighteousness.  Help me to live the way that you want me to and to trust You more, instead of trying harder to be a “good” person. 

I pray that you will make me aware of Your presence through the Holy Spirit and strengthen me to avoid temptations and sins that so easily entangle me.  Forgive my sins, remove them, and cover them and make me blameless before You.  I pray and receive Your forgiveness through the blood of Jesus. 

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen.

Psalm 103: 8-12  "The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.  He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.  For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is form the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us."
