Forgiveness Prayer To God

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. (Dr Ray Pritchard)

Father, you hold the key to every heart on earth, we do not. Judgment for others is not in our hands, and shouldn’t be on our resumes. As we seek You more each day in prayer and in Your Word, show us how to be forgiving, in Christ. Cleanse us of our tendency to keep records of wrongs and reasons for blame.

Let us not become people who shame others, but show them how to be free through Christ. We want our lives to reflect Your brightness, Your grace, and Your love.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Forgiveness Prayer To God

O 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’ve fed me with the precious body and blood of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. 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 Your Holy Spirit bring me charity and patience, humility and obedience, and growth in power to do good.

O Christ, my Creator and Redeemer, Holy Spirit, 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. In Jesus’ name, 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. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for coming to Earth. I believe You are the Son of God and who died on the cross for the forgiveness of 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 hear my prayers for forgiveness. Amen.
