Strong prayer for forgiveness

Whether we are seeking forgiveness for our own sins or asking God to help us forgive others, prayer is the first place to start when seeking restoration and healing.  The below prayers can help guide your thoughts and words as you seek being forgiven or help in forgiving others. It is a big step to seek out forgiveness and you have taken a bold step in faith! 

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.

1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Isaiah 1:18 – “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. 

Micah 7:18-19 – Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.

Mark 11:25 – And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

strong prayer for forgiveness

A Prayer for Forgiveness

I have sinned, Lord, and while I know that all have sinned and come
short I am having a hard time letting go of my shame and accepting your forgiveness.

I know that I am unworthy of your love, but Your Word promises
forgiveness as long as we confess our sins to You and repent.
I am so sorry for falling short of what You expect of me,
and I pray for your mercy and the strength not to make the same mistakes again.

Amen

There are many circumstances when we need to ask to be forgiven. One of the more common circumstances that we see in prayer requests, is asking for forgiveness after an infidelity.

We must learn to forgive even after the most hurtful of actions.

Forgiveness After an Affair

Being betrayed by a spouse is a very painful thing,
but we know, Lord, that it is Your will that we learn to forgive.
What others do should never impact our walk with you, God.

We need to be able to learn to forgive even the most painful breach of trust.
Help us to forgive our spouse the same way that we want You to forgive us,
and give us peace and healing for our broken hearts.

Amen

Forgiveness in The Scriptures

The word of God offers us guidance on how to forgive our neighbors, and ourselves.

“Then Peter came up and said to him, Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times? Jesus said to him, I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.””

This is the essence of becoming a better human being, the essential prayer to make us worthy of the gift of
humanity. But the challenge is so great you rightly call for help. But you also open yourself up to a galvanizing
experience of divine intervention, but if you can make this appeal in such strong, vivid, uncompromising language, YOU ARE READY. No more B-U-T-S which qualify and stall action – the cleansing begins N-O-W. (Report) Reply

with me, wanting to be forgiven myself, it’s not difficult to formally release a person. but those dang roots- those are more difficult to deal with… but yes, forgiveness is essential, at the center of us human beings living in harmony which is why, i believe, it’s one of the intercessions in the lord’s prayer. thank you, daniel, for taking the time to read and comment on my poem. -glen

We want to share this prayer for forgiveness with you. But first, we want to share about the dangers of unforgiveness and how it affects your life if you don’t forgive.

We want to share these bible verses on forgiveness with you.

The main Danger of Unforgiveness
Matthew 6:14-15 Amplified Bible (AMP) “For if you forgive others their trespasses , your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others , then your Father will not forgive your trespasses.”

Unforgiveness not only keeps you in bondage from moving forward but it puts a block between you and God. How then will your prayers be answered?  Being separated from God is the worst thing that can happen for you. Harboring unforgiveness hurts your relationship with the Lord more than anything else.

Motivation to forgive others

So here are some things to keep in mind that should motivate your desire to forgive:

  • You can’t allow what someone else did to you to cause you to be separated from God. It’s not worth it!
  • You will never be able to walk in the calling of God fully if you don’t release the unforgiveness from your heart
  • Once you release the unforgiveness a promotion comes to your own life immediately as it relates to your destiny
  • Focus on your calling and understand that this stands in the way. Turn this stumbling block into a stepping stone.

People in the Bible who learned to forgive

  • David had to forgive Saul for trying to kill him. Actually, David even had occasion to kill Saul and chose not to do it.  He already knew that Samuel anointed him to be King. Therefore, why would he need to get blood on his hands? (1 Samuel 24:4-11) He chose to focus on his future not the past or even what was happening in the present.
  • Joseph had to forgive his brothers for trying to murder him. Potiphar’s wife from accusing him of attempted rape and landed him in prison. The prisoner in the cell with him that promised to help but forgot him for 2 years.  At the end of the day, Joseph was in charge of Egypt.  He was 2nd in command so in not harboring unforgiveness he was able to step into his purpose. (Genesis 37-50)
  • The father of the prodigal son had to forgive him (Luke 15)
  • Jesus has to forgive you for the sins you commit against him on a daily basis even after coming into salvation

If you forgive does this mean you forget?

No.  You can forgive but how can you forget it?  This actually happened to you. When it becomes unhealthy is when you play the past over and over again in your head like a broken record. You won’t forget but that does not mean you keep remembering it and reliving the trauma.

How will you know when you’ve truly forgiven someone

You’ll see them & it won’t bring up the past offenses in your mind.  You won’t have the same feeling towards them as you did in the past.  You’ll have no problem praying for God’s blessing upon them and wanting their heart’s desires to be fulfilled.  Also, you won’t feel the need to tell others what they did to you.

Think about this, if I told you that I have forgiven my father who raped me as a child you may marvel at God’s healing grace but, let’s be honest, when you see my father on the street how will you feel about him?  Do you see how this is a problem?  I would’ve created an environment where other people now carry the offense for me against the offending person.  Not good.

If you truly forgave you would no longer feel the need to talk about it.  If you keep bringing it up, that means that you have some lingering resentment.  It means that you have this broken record playing over and over again in your mind and you can’t let it go.

In these situations the deliverance from unforgiveness will be complete when you stop talking about it.

What happens when you forgive someone but they keep doing the same thing to you?

Sometimes you can forgive someone and they keep doing the same bad things to you or new things from the same spirit. This should not stop you from forgiving them again.  You need to release it all over again to God.  If the person is not repentant you need to move away from them.  Move on.  Read Matthew 18:15-19  Please note the verses that immediately following this one, it talks about forgiveness Matthew 18:21-35.  So the take away message is, you remove yourself from them but you must forgive them even if they are not repentant. Psalm 66:18-20

What happens when you know you’ve forgiven someone but it keeps coming back to your mind?

If this happens to you then it means that you are on the brink of a breakthrough.  A HUGE breakthrough!!! Remember that the enemy will use the offense as a stumbling block to stop you from moving forward.  Satan’s job is to stop you from becoming who God created you to be so what better way to do that than to cause you to hold unforgiveness in your heart?  He can’t stop your calling but he can make you forfeit it by holding iniquity in your heart.

The fact that he would reach back and try to bring up something that has been resolved means he’s grasping for straws.  It means that your current life is being lived to the glory of God, you’re pressing into the Lord and the enemy has nothing new on you and no part in you; therefore, he has to reach back and bring up something old.

The Holy Spirit convicts, He does not condemn (Romans 8:1).  If you’ve resolved this months even years ago, it’s the enemy trying to see if you’ll fall for this old trick.  He wants to see if you’ll latch on to it and follow him down the path of unforgiveness (which you’ve already been delivered from) again!

Here’s what you do…you speak aloud “I have already forgiven__________.  The matter has already been settled in my mind, soul and in heaven.  I bind up this thought of unforgiveness and I bind the father of lies and I plead the blood of Jesus over my mind and soul”  Then immediately you go into a short prayer of blessing over that person.  That’s it!  The thoughts will leave immediately and you can move on.  When you start praying blessing over the person, think of every area of their life and bless them in that area.

Trust that the enemy will no longer bring this one up because he knows what will follow is a prayer of blessing over the person and he can’t afford that!

Also, watch for a major breakthrough in your life within a week of doing this.  Truly it was his last ditch effort to stop you.

Prayer for forgiveness for others

Father God, I thank you for the forgiveness of my sins as Jesus shed his blood for me on the cross.  I thank you that I was washed clean of my sins of the past, present and the future.  I do not receive this gift of forgiveness lightly and understand that when I moved into having a relationship with you God, through Jesus, that same forgiveness that was imputed to me I must now give to others.  Lord, based on your word in Collossians 3:13 that says I should forgive as you have forgiven me I choose to walk in obedience.  I choose to forgive.  I lay down my will and I accept your word as true. I pray for grace to forgive.  Flow forgiveness through me by the power of the Holy Ghost.  In areas where I feel I cannot forgive I ask you to release a special grace upon me.  You also said in your word “My strength is made perfect in your weakness” I confess that I am weak in this area so I need your perfected strength to forgive. I choose to forgive __________  for doing _____, _____, ______ to me.  I release it all to you Lord.  I ask that you wash my mind clean with the blood of Jesus.  Uproot any root of bitterness as a result of ____________.  Plant only peace and love in those areas God.  Restore my joy. Forgive me for holding on to this for so long.  I repent for my rebellion and stubbornness.  I ask that you release me from this iniquity.  Let no iniquity stand in the way of my fellowship with you.  Rip this veil away and show me Your face.  Restore to me all that was lost because of this sin.  I have suffered so much pain and hurt in my life because of this. I need to be healed by our power.  Bind up my wounds. Heal my soul.

I freely now pray this blessing over  _________.  I pray that you will bless them in all areas of their life.  That you would develop a deep abiding relationship with them.  That you would bless them with finances in all areas of their life.  That you would bring Godly relationships in their life.  That you would meet all of their needs.  That you would heal their body and bring prosperity to their soul.  That you would heal them in all of their wounded places.  I pray that you would fill them with your joy and peace.  I pray that you would bless their entire family and bring their entire family into a relationship with You.  That you would use them powerfully in ministry for you.  Bless them more than they can ask or think or imagine, in Jesus Name, Amen.

There are times when we need to forgive ourselves because we may have done things that had grave consequences that can’t be undone.  The thing you need to always remember is that Jesus forgave you.

Job 23:10 New International Version (NIV) “But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.”

Before you even made the mistake God knew you were going to take that road. He has already made accommodations for it in His plan for your life. You must accept the fact that you made a mistake and forgive yourself.

Sometimes restoration doesn’t mean that you get back the old thing, it can mean that you get something new.  Believe God for the new.

Prayer for forgiving yourself

Father God, forgive me for the wrong that I have done.  Thank you for forgiving me. Please show me how to forgive myself.  I ask that whatever can be restored as it was before please restore it.  I ask you to restore  ________________________.  But God, not my will but yours be done so if You know there is something greater, please bring it forth and give me the grace to release the past.  I forgive myself because you have forgiven me. If there are others I need to ask for forgiveness bring them to mind and i ask for the wisdom of words to ask them to forgive me.  I trust that you know the way I take and after I have been tested I will come forth as god, in Jesus name, Amen

Children of God be blessed!  Expect God to restore you and promote you after you complete this process of forgiveness.  If you need prayer, write it in the comment section and we will pray for you in the area of forgiveness.
