Prayer of Repentance

 

Psalms 34:17-19″Yes, the Lord hears the good man when he calls to Him for help, and saves him out of all his troubles. The Lord is close to those whose heart is breaking; He rescues those who are humbly sorry for their sins. The good man does not escape all troubles – he has them, too. But the Lord helps him in each and every one.

Heavenly Father, dear Lord Jesus Christ, I am very sorry for my sin. After reflecting and meditating over the impact of my (actions/words/ etc) on those around me, I feel terribly sorry. Please Lord, forgive me for my weakness. Give me strength to stand up to sinful temptation.  Fill my heart with reverence for you, so that I may obey you all my days. In Jesus name, Amen

First John 1: 7-9

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
