Prayer of Confession, of Repentance, of Forgiveness, for Forgiveness


I pray this prayer to You and to those who may read it. I repent of all my sin, both by omission and commission. I pray that I would change my life forever, right here, right now.

I pray for your forgiveness oh God.

I pray these words to all I have encountered in my life.

I pray that these words would come to me ever more easily, that I would let things go, that I would own what I have done both that which I am able to fix and that which I cannot fix.

I pray that I would be more forgiving and more loving each day of my life.

I pray I would seek your counsel more fully in every thought, word, and deed in my life. I pray I would conform my steps to the way of our risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I pray I would love as he loved and loves me, not as the world loves.

I forgive all who have harmed me in my life. including those who are planning harm to me.

I pray that those I have hurt will forgive me.

I am sorrow for what I have said and done (and what I have not done when I had the opportunity to act or speak but didn't).

I also apologize and ask for forgiveness for what I have not let go of.

I pray to be better each day, for I am a work in progress.

I pray this to you, oh God.
