Love is the one true reason why God insists that all of his children must forgive one another, as well as themselves, for all of our sins.
If you are familiar with Romans 5:18, God reminds us that we are sinners; you see, God demonstrated His unconditional love through the sacrifice Jesus Christ willingly took for all of us, and because of our sins.
Yes, God understands that we are all flawed people, and because of our flaws we can grow and become better people if we can ask to be forgiven, and also to forgive those that have hurt us, and with that said, if you are seeking forgiveness from the Lord, one of the below prayers may help you speak to God.
Act of Contrition
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you, whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, To do penance, sin no more, And avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy. Amen.
Romans 12: 18-21
Father, I offer to You my deepest prayers. Against the works of the enemy, please guide me. For instance, I ask of You to guide me as I turn my cheeks when my enemies slap me. Because of Your Ways, I ask of You to heal my heart at times it is being tested. With this, I ask that You accept this prayer for forgiveness. In Your Grace, I am protected, loved, and saved. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
Lord Jesus Christ, You are the lamb of God; You take away the sins of the world. Through the Grace of the Holy Spirit restore me to friendship with The Father, cleanse me from every stain of sin in the blood You shed for me, and raise me to new life for the glory of Your name. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
1 John 1:9
Lord, Merciful Father, I have sinned against You. Because of my human desires, I caused You pain. Because of the temptations I followed, I wronged You. Father, I confess all of my lapses to You. I do this for one thing and that is for Your forgiveness. I do not wish to live a life opposite to Your Words. Most importantly, I do not want to stray away from Your Holy Presence. Father, take my apologies and gratitude in hopes of purifying all my sins. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
Luke 15:18, Psalm 51:3-4
Lord, for days I kept my mouth shut, my heart closed and my eyes ignorant to Your Mercy. Therefore, I am seeking Your acceptance in granting me another day of growth and repentance. Undoubtedly, I say with faith that Jesus is my Savior and my Refuge. Through Your Grace, I walk in the path of love and compassion. With You, security and protection strive within my days. I pray for a season of forgiveness so I may walk in accordance with Your Will. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
Psalm 103: 10-14
Merciful Father, as Your Son paid the price of our sins, He lovingly asked for forgiveness towards all mankind as they do not know what they are doing. Father Almighty, because of this, I am confessing my sins in my thoughts, words, and actions. As well as the sins of my brother and sisters, I am asking for Your Mercy in granting us forgiveness as we live our lives on Earth. I pray, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Prayer for Forgiveness
Lord Jesus, I come before you today feeling quite low. As I consider my mistakes, the ways I have sinned against you and others, my heart breaks to see my actions in the mirror of my conscience, and I feel lost.
When I remember the love you have for us, it deepens my grief for what I have done, and I wish I could take it all back.
I know the only way is forward, however. To move in that direction, I desperately need your forgiveness. May your mercy wash me of all my sins and cleanse my heart of evil desires. Your willingness to die on the cross provides me confidence that, if I ask to be forgiven, you will give me this gift.
And once I have freedom from my sin, keep me safe from future temptations and strengthen my heart and resolve to choose what is right. Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifice that affords me another chance. Amen.
Because of You, I rest completely at night and wake up renewed in the morning. Due to Your Sacrifice, my sins are forgotten and forgiven. Because of Your Love, my enemies cannot drag me down. Therefore, Lord, I ask that you give me power to endure and learn how to forgive others. Merciful Lord, remind me of Your Love so that I won’t seek hate in my heart. Please accept my prayer for forgiveness towards others and myself. May You bless me with understanding and empathy so that the downfall of my enemies won’t give me joy. Lord, may I help them as we walk together in Your Ways. I pray. Amen.
in the name of Jesus, the sins of the people were set free. Still, I wake to commit actions that are sinful and wrong in Your Eyes. Additionally, I wake to live my days away from Your Words and I stray away from the teachings You set out for the world. However, Lord, I do not wish to live my life away from Your Grace. I confess my sins to You and I am asking for forgiveness as you cleanse my heart and keep me close to Your presence O’ dear God of Wisdom. I pray, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
If you are in need of forgiveness then I hope that just reading these prayers can help you achieve what you are searching for.
I would love to know what your favorite prayers of forgiveness may be, so please share them with me if you have time to do so!
