Prayer For Forgiveness And Mercy
Heavenly Father, thank You that You are quick to forgive. Thank You, that You have removed our sins as far as the east is from the west. Right now, Lord, we ask of You mercy and compassion, and we implore the forgiveness of sins. In Jesus' name,
Father God, thank You that You are the One that pardons guilty sinners, like me who are unworthy to so much as approach Your perfect righteousness. By rights, I should be excluded from Your presence forever, for I am guilty of so many of my sins and should stand condemned and exposed before You, who is a perfect and holy God. And yet in Your grace and mercy, You reached down from heaven to save a guilty sinner and sent Jesus to die on the cross so that by believing on Him, I would not perish but have everlasting life.
Thank You, Lord, for Jesus, Thank You for dying on the cross and shedding Your blood for me. In Jesus' name,
Father, the weight of my sins weigh heavily on my conscience and I know that there is no righteousness in me. I come to You pleading for Your great mercy, and repent of all the many sins that I have committed against You so grievously. Lord, I confess that in my pride and arrogance I even joked about Your existence and blasphemed You in word and deed, and yet I discover that You sent Your only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to be the only acceptable sacrifice that could pay the price for my sins.
Lord, I kneel before You broken in heart for the wrong that I have done against You, and beg for Your grace and mercy on a pitiful sinner, who has come to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, and that He is my Saviour and Redeemer. Wash away all my sins I pray, and cleanse both my mouth and my thoughts from the filth that has poured fourth from my blackened heart. Lord, I come in humility of heart and brokenness of spirit, and pray and thank You that in Your mercy You sent Jesus to be the price for my sins. Thank You for Your promise that all who believe on Him would not perish but have their sins forgiven and receive the free gift of eternal life. Thank You, that I have been saved by Your grace, simply by trusting in the blood of Christ, in Whose name I pray,
Father God, I kneel before You knowing that I have sinned against You in so many different ways. In what I have said and done, as well as in the dirty thoughts that flood through my mind. I know that I am a sinner and as such, I was the cause of the Lord Jesus being crucified on the cruel cross to take the punishment that I justly deserve, to pay that price for my sins. Lord, I know that I am unworthy to come before You, but I ask Your forgiveness of all my sins, for the sake of Your Son, Jesus ChristWho died for me at Calvary.
Wash me I pray, in the purifying blood of Jesus. Cleanse me from all my sins. Fill my heart with righteous thoughts and clean desires, for I no longer want to wallow in the cesspit of sin that has for so long separated me from You. Thank You, Lord, that You have promised that all who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour will have their sins forgiven forever. Praise You Lord, for Your grace and mercy on me, a sinner saved by grace. In Jesus' name I pray,
Dear Merciful Lord, thank you for your gift of forgiveness. Your only Son loved me enough to come to earth and experience the worst pain imaginable so I could be forgiven. Your mercy flows to me in spite of my faults and failures. Your Word says to clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. (Col. 3:14) Help me demonstrate unconditional love today, even to those who hurt me.
I understand that even though I feel scarred, my emotions don't have to control my actions. Father, may Your sweet words saturate my mind and direct my thoughts. Help me release the hurt and begin to love as Jesus loves. I want to see my offender through my Savior's eyes. If I can be forgiven, so can he. I understand there are no levels to your love. We are all your children, and your desire is that none of us should perish.
You teach us to let the peace that comes from Christ rule in our hearts. (Col. 3:15) When I forgive in words, allow your Holy Spirit to fill my heart with peace. I pray this peace that only comes from Jesus will rule in my heart, keeping out doubt and questions. And above all, I am thankful. Not just today, not just this week, but always. Thank you for the reminder, Always be thankful. (Col. 3:15) With gratitude, I can draw closer to you and let go of unforgiveness. With gratitude, I can see the person who caused my pain as a child of God. Loved and accepted. Help me find the compassion that comes with true forgiveness.
And when I see the person who hurt me, bring this prayer back to my remembrance, so I can take any ungodly thoughts captive and make them obedient to Christ. (2 Cor. 10:5) And may the confidence of Christ in my heart guide me into the freedom of forgiveness. I praise you for the work you are doing in my life, teaching, and perfecting my faith. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Lord, Father all-powerful, and ever-living God, I thank you, for even though I am a sinner in the kindness of your mercy you have fed me with the precious body and blood of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that this holy communion may not bring me condemnation and punishment but forgiveness and salvation. May it be a helmet of faith and a shield of goodwill. May it purify me from evil ways and put an end to my evil passions. May it bring me charity and patience, humility and obedience, and growth in power to do good.
May it be my strong defense against all my enemies, visible and invisible, and the perfect calming of all my evil impulses, bodily and spiritual. May it unite me more closely to you, the one true God and lead me safely through death to everlasting happiness with you. Lead me, a sinner, to the banquet, where you with your Son and Holy Spirit, there is true and perfect light, total fulfillment, everlasting joy, gladness without end and perfect happiness for your saints. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Lord Jesus, Son of God,
Have mercy on me,
Dear LORD God, so very much has collapsed in my life, in so many different and insurmountable ways in the past two years, that I am certain I am under your Wrath. Your wrath is just and righteous, but LORD I beg you for your great mercy through the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Please restore me to your favor, your mercy, your blessing, your PROTECTION and your Providential care. Please protect me and please protect my loved ones from all harm and trouble. Please help us financially for I and they are in very dire straits. Please protect my mom and dad and save and convert them. Please protect my sister and save and convert her.
Please save all my relatives, friends and acquaintances and their families and friends too. Please heal me LORD. Please don't break me without healing even though you have every cause to do just that. Please give me a wise, honest, righteous and courageous Heart. Please help, Lord, please help. In the holy name of Christ Jesus, Amen.
