"God loves us and he is eager to forgive, when we go back to him and repent." ~ Pastor Peter Otieno
Introductory Bible Verses for Prayer Of Repentance:
- If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now my eyes shall be open, and my ears attentive, to the prayer that is made in this place. 2 Chronicles 7:14-15 NHEB.
Pastor Peter and his wife, Rose from Kenya East Africa submitted this powerful prayer of repentance. Repentance is a changing of your mind about who you are, and the way you act. To repent means to accept God and his word into your life, and commit your life to obedience in following Jesus Christ.
I hope you pray the prayer, enjoy the pastor's pictures, and also continue reading about the needs of his Kenya, East Africa ministry.
You can start following Jesus today by praying along with Pastor Peter. Begin by preparing your heart with the following Bible verses.
Please take a few minutes to read and meditate on each of these Bible passages about repentance. This is God talking to YOU. Think about it. Dwell on the fact that the God who created this world is speaking directly to YOU. He is holy, and he wants YOU to become holy, as well.
Psalm 51:17 - A broken heart and contrite heart, O God thou wilt not despise.
Psalm 147:3 - He healeth the broken heart and bindeth their wounds.
Luke 5:32 - I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repent.
Acts 17:21 - The time of ignorance, God winked at, but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent.
Now, let's approach our mighty God in humble prayer.
Father, in Jesus' name I pray
that you give your people everywhere, Lord
the spirit of repentance.
Lord, you are faithful to them that come to you with a sincere heart
for you despise not the right heart, Lord.
And Lord forgive them their sin.
I pray Lord that you remember your people,
those who are entangled with sin and are in the bondage of sin.
Help them, Lord to know the right path to follow
and that you may forgive them, Lord
and take away their sin.
I am taking this time, Lord, to uplift every life to you,
Lord, to wash with your precious blood that poured from the cross, God.
Lord, help us to learn from your love.
You gave your life for the sake of our life
to live a holy life and blameless.
On the cross it is our burden you carried,
and you said all is finished.
I thank you, Father for Jesus dying for us on the cross
to save those, that, believe in thy name.
I pray, Father that you heal every wound in the lives of your people
Father, help them to know you as Savior and Lord.
Lord,in Jesus' holy name I dismantle every boasting spirit in the lives of your people
and with the authority of the Holy Spirit
I break the strong walls in the lives of your people
and God I pray for liberty, in Jesus' name.
Father, I thank you and I bless your holy name,
Let your word live with us and dwell in the heart of your people, in Jesus' name.
Set them free, in Jesus' name.
And Father release every chain and bondage, in Jesus' name.
I pray, Father that you may grant us favor to do your work.
Father, the harvest is plentiful but harvesters are few.
Father, I pray that you may send workers to the field, in Jesus' name.
Father, I pray all these things, trusting you have heard
and will perform good works in the lives of your people, in Jesus' name.
