Prayer For Forgiveness And Strength
O Christ, my Creator and Redeemer, Almighty Lord God, forgive the sins of all who are joined to me by friendship or blood, and for whom I pray, or have resolved to pray, and all your faithful people. Deliver them from all evil, preserve them in all good, and bring them to eternal joy; for your honor and glory. 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, for too long I've kept you out of my life. I know that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. No longer will I close the door when I hear you knocking. By faith, I gratefully receive your gift of salvation. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for bearing my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen.
Lord, I'm in that place again On my knees Laying my life out before You Thank you that on the cross you cried "It is finished" You have done it Forgiveness is complete I can live forever in Your grace Forever in Your love So I ask now for Your forgiveness For the wrongs that I have done And the things that I have neglected I ask for Your forgiveness For the people I have hurt along the way And those who I have failed to love as You love I ask for Your forgiveness I receive Your forgiveness And resolve in my heart That with Your strength I determine not to make these errors again I receive Your forgiveness And by the power of Your Holy Spirit I walk away from everything I know to be wrong And embrace everything I know about You For the kingdom, the power and the glory Are always and forever Yours Amen
Lord God, I trust in you today. I thank you that you keep turning the pages of my life. Everyday you give me a new beginning. Help me to ride each new wave of temptation, and to overcome the things that can drag my life down. As I look to you I declare your promise of freedom over my life. Amen.
Lord first I would like thank you for all that you have done for me in my life. Forgive me for any sinful acts that I may have commited against your covenant knowningly and unknowingly. Lord, I am asking for you to shed your light upon me and help me come out of the darkness of depression and unhappiness.
I pray that you take over my financial siuation and help me become employed again. As the devil tries to take away my ambition let your blessings give me strength, wisdom and focus. Lord, you are a gracious God and I love to serve you. Please release me from this wrath of fury and let your light shine upon me so bright that Baal can not see me again.
Lord Jesus Christ let the light of my angel be upon me so that doors will open in my favor, regaining finacial sevurity and emotional security. Lord I rebuke depression in my life. Lord I rebuke unemployment in my life. Lord I rebuke unhappiness in my life. Lord I rebuke evildoers from my life, they are beneath me. God I ask for your protection, for if you are with me then nothing can be against me.
In Jesus Christ name I pray. Amen
I pray for forgiveness and that You give me the strength to forgive others; I pray also that You forgive them for their stubborness.
I humbly ask You for Strength to deal with the current situation I face, my future being so unsure makes my head and my heart ache and sometimes pride creeps in where Love should be. I pray that You soften the heart of others and make them realise how their actions affect our lives and that the people they listen to do not have their interest at heart. I pray that they return to the family and conquer their ignorance and pride.
I pray for a clear and vivid sign as to which direction I should take and to the decisions I make. I trust in You completely Almighty God and know that You will never steer me wrong.
Please give me the wisdom to appreciate Your signs and the understanding of the reasons behind the outcome. I will do what You deem best for me (and my children) and will continuously praise and thank You.
My works and deeds I shall do with Your Blessings and Grace and pray that you can see that my heart is sincere and my intentions are good.
Gracious Jesus, every time I pray the Lord's Prayer, I'm confronted with the daily-ness, even the moment by moment call to forgive others. Usually that's not a big deal. Maybe it's because I'm conflict avoidant and would rather wave off an offense than deal with the chaos and mess. But you've been forcing the issue over the past few weeks. There's brokenness in me and all around me. Old wounds are tender again and fresh relational hurts are emerging.
My conflict-allergy is a thin veil for the serial killer that lives within. Even as I write and pray this prayer, names and faces come before me that I know I haven't forgiven from my heart or from anywhere else. I've enjoyed holding them emotionally hostage by my critical spirit and self-righteous smuggery but in reality, I'm more a prisoner than they are. It's been easier to rehearse their sins than repent of the hardness of my heart, and that's never a good sign.
Help me, Jesus, and others like me. I want to want to be free. Though I'm convicted, it's not easy to walk away from the pain. Self-protection looks a lot better, right now, than a vulnerable heart. What if the same thing happens again? What if I risk trusting but only end up with more chapters of the same story? Even as I pray, I realize how much I need the power of the gospel right now, in this very moment. Have mercy on me, Jesus. Have mercy on me the sinner. By the grace and truth of the gospel, humble me and free me
Jesus, I praise you for already forgiving all of my sinspast, present, and future; every sin of word, thought, and deed. And you have robed mecovered me with your perfect righteousness. I praise you for not merely waving off my sins but wading into the mess of my heart. You paid the supreme price for my salvation and transformation, with the currency of your life and death.
As I ponder the riches of your grace for me, of course I admit that my unforgiveness is the greatest non sequitur of all. It does not follow that I can lay claim to being forgiven and at the same time withhold mercy and grace from others. On no terms is this okay.
By faith, I surrender to you right now, but I will not vainly promise anything. You must help me, Jesus. I cannot and I will not do this on my own. Make my worldly sorrow godly sorrow. May your kindness drive me to obvious repentance and change, and soon. So very Amen I pray, in your holy and loving name.
