Prayer About Sins

Heavenly Father,

I come before You today, acknowledging my sins and the ways in which I have fallen short of Your glory. I confess that I have not loved You with all my heart, nor have I loved my neighbors as myself. I have not honored You in my thoughts and actions, and I have not been faithful in following Your commands.

I humbly ask for Your forgiveness and grace, knowing that Your love is greater than all my sins. I trust in Your Son, Jesus Christ, and the sacrifice He made on the cross for the forgiveness of my sins. Through His death and resurrection, I believe that I have been made new in Your sight.

I also ask for Your help in turning from my sins and living in obedience to Your Word. I recognize that I cannot do this on my own, but with Your Spirit dwelling in me, I believe that I can overcome the power of sin and live in righteousness.

I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
