Forgiveness for Sins Prayer

Heavenly Father,

I come before You in humility and repentance, acknowledging my sins and the ways in which I have fallen short of Your glory. I confess that I have not always lived according to Your will and have failed to honor You in my thoughts, words, and actions.

I ask for Your forgiveness and the cleansing of my heart through the blood of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for my sins and rose again to give me new life. I believe that He is Lord and that His death and resurrection have made a way for me to be reconciled to You.

I turn away from my sins and ask for Your help in living a life that is pleasing to You. I ask for Your Holy Spirit to guide me and empower me to resist temptation and to walk in obedience to Your Word. I pray that my thoughts, words and actions would be a reflection of Your love and grace.

I ask this in the name of Jesus, my savior and Lord, Amen.
