Prayer to God for Forgiveness of Sins

Even while I encourage you to pray this prayer, I caution you that saying words alone will not save you. Prayer doesn’t save. Only Christ can save. But prayer can be a means of reaching out to the Lord in true saving faith. If you pray these words in faith, Christ will save you. You can be sure of that.

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.

If you have prayed this prayer in sincere faith, you may want to put your initials by the prayer along with today’s date as a reminder that you have come to Christ in faith, trusting him as your Lord and Savior.

Prayer for Forgiving  Others

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 the Most High 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.

Father, today I ask forgiveness of all the negative and harmful words I have spoken about myself. I do not want to abuse myself in such a way again.

Текст песни “Alicia Keys – Pray For Forgiveness”

Beautiful garden, where have you gone? My self delusions are leaving me in the storm Taking for granted all the goodness that I’ve found Somewhere I lost all, the control came crashing down And I pray for forgiveness Look for the answers Cause it’s hard For me to pretend Look to my mother Call to the captain Can’t you see This state that I’m in No one would notice Nobody noticed Cause it’s me where it began Beautiful morning, please don’t wake me from my sleep Cause I need some comfort to regain my sanity I don’t want to feel this crazy I don’t want to feel this guarded Shattered in a million pieces I’m so broken hearted No where left to run No where left to go So I hope I pray for forgiveness Look for the answers Cause it’s hard for me to pretend Look to my mother Call to the captain Can’t you see This state that I’m in? And no one would notice Nobody noticed That it’s me, where it began And I pray for forgiveness within I swear that everyday I feel like my mind is haunting me I think of every little stupid mistake that has been made This time I don’t have the strength to gather myself I’m falling to pieces And I pray for forgiveness Look for the answer Cause it’s hard for me to pretend Look to my mother Call to the captain Can’t you see This state that I’m in Pray for forgiveness Looking for justice Searching for answers Call to my mother Pray for forgiveness Breaking the silence Nobody knows it, nobody noticed That it’s me where it began

Pray for forgiveness

Beautiful garden, where have you gone?
My self delusions are leaving me in the storm
Taking for granted,
All the goodness that I’ve found
Somewhere I lost all,
The control came crashing down.

And I pray for forgiveness

Look for the answers
Cause it’s hard
For me to pretend
Look to my mother
Call to the captain
Can’t you see
This state that I’m in
No one would notice
Nobody noticed
Cause it’s me where it began

Beautiful morning,

Please, don’t wake me from my sleep
Cause I need some comfort, to regain my sanity
I don’t want to feel this crazy,
I don’t want to feel this guarded
Shattered in a million pieces
I’m so broken-hearted
Nowhere left to run
Nowhere left to go
So I hope

I pray for forgiveness

Look for the answers
Cause it’s hard for me to pretend
Look to my mother
Call to the captain
Can’t you see
This state that I’m in?
And no one would notice
Nobody noticed
That it’s me, where it began
And I pray for forgiveness within

I swear that every day

I feel like my mind is haunting me
I think of every little stupid mistake
That has been made
This time I don’t have the strength
To gather myself
I’m falling to pieces

And I pray for forgiveness

Look for the answer
Cause it’s hard for me to pretend
Look to my mother
Call to the captain
Can’t you see
This state that I’m in
Pray for forgiveness
Looking for justice
Searching for answers
Call to my mother
Pray for forgiveness
Breaking the silence

Nobody knows it, nobody noticed

That it’s me
Where it began

Молюсь о прощении

Прекрасный сад, куда ты исчез?
Мои иллюзии покидают меня во время бури.
Я принимала как должное
Все обретенные мною блага,
Но я потеряла все.
Я потеряла контроль.

И я молюсь о прощении,

Я ищу ответы,
Потому что мне трудно
Притворяться.
Я с надеждой смотрю на маму,
Я взываю к Господу.
Разве вы не видите,
В каком я состоянии?
Никто бы не заметил.
Никто не заметил,
Потому что я сама виновата в этом.

Прекрасное утро,

Прошу, не будите меня ото сна,
Потому что мне нужен покой,
Чтобы вернуть рассудок.
Я не хочу быть такой сумасшедшей,
Я не хочу, чтобы меня так опекали.
Я разбита на миллион кусочков,
Я убита горем.
Мне некуда бежать,
Мне некуда пойти,
И поэтому я надеюсь:

И я молюсь о прощении,

Я ищу ответы,
Потому что мне трудно
Притворяться.
Я с надеждой смотрю на маму,
Я взываю к Господу.
Разве вы не видите,
В каком я состоянии?
Никто бы не заметил.
Никто не заметил,
Что я сама виновата в этом,
И я молюсь о прощении в душе.

Клянусь, каждый день

Мысли преследуют меня.
Я думаю
О каждой маленькой глупой ошибке,
Которую совершила.
На этот раз у меня нет сил
Собраться.
Я рассыпаюсь на кусочки.

И я молюсь о прощении,

Я ищу ответы,
Потому что мне трудно
Притворяться.
Я с надеждой смотрю на маму,
Я взываю к Господу.
Разве вы не видите,
В каком я состоянии?
Я молюсь о прощении,
Я ищу справедливость,
Ищу ответы.
Я с надеждой смотрю на маму,
Я молюсь о прощении,
Я нарушаю тишину.

Никто этого не знает, никто не заметил,

Что я сама виновата
В этом.
