Prayer for Divine Mercy

Dear God,

I come before You today with a heavy heart, seeking Your mercy and grace. I know that I am not worthy of Your love and forgiveness, but I ask that You would extend Your hand to me in my time of need.

I confess my sins and the ways in which I have fallen short of Your glory. I ask for Your forgiveness and the strength to turn away from my sinful ways.

I pray for Your mercy to cover me and wash me clean. Help me to trust in Your unfailing love and to rest in the knowledge that I am forgiven through the blood of Jesus.

I pray that Your Spirit would fill me and empower me to live a life that is pleasing to You. May I be a reflection of Your love and grace to those around me.

Thank You for Your divine mercy, for it is by Your grace that I am saved.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
