My friend, forgiveness for your awful sin is waiting for you in heaven. I wrote this prayer for forgiveness if you'd like to pray with me, or please create a prayer from your heart. Above all else, simply say "Lord, forgive me!"
Dear Heavenly Father,
Why must I always fail and sin against You?
Why do I not believe in your promises?
Why am I so weak, so powerless against sin?
Father, bring me low, into the dirt
Reveal how my sin has caused you pain and hurt.
Show me the offense, the damage I caused.
O God, discipline me - bring me to guilt and shame,
For I'll know you still love me as your own,
Because that's what Hebrews twelve tells me.
This sin must be acknowledged, admitted and confessed,
Lord, I'm sorry, I see the sin, and it is fully mine,
Forgive me, O God, I am the sinner - I am at fault.
I hate this sin, Lord, I hate it with all my heart,
I want to stop it, need to stop it, will stop this sin,
Your will must be sought, your kingdom must win.
Satan prowls like a lion seeking me to devour,
O God, he is ferocious and hungry, therefore, I need your power.
He wants to destroy me, but cannot if You guard me.
The Bible is your truth, your story, and your letter to me,
Your will is good and revealed plainly to see.
I love your commands, Lord, your beautiful Word,
Forgive me, O Lord, let me be once again whole,
Have mercy on my weak, sinful soul.
Let your grace fall, let your warm kindness flow.
Please, please forgive my sins, dear Father,
In Jesus' name I humbly pray.
God will grant you forgiveness when he is pleased with your humility and faith. You'll know it, after he forgives you and washes the sins from your heart.
