Prayer for Forgiveness:

Our Father in Heaven, please forgive me for my sins that I have committed, both wilfully and unknowingly. I come to you seeking your mercy, in the throne of Grace. Please forgive me for all the sins that I have done with my thoughts, words and deeds. Forgive me for the bad things I have done and the good things that I have failed to do. Forgive me for not using the gifts, talents, treasures, time, money and opportunities you have given me well for your glory. Forgive me for not making the most of the resources that you have given me, to advance your kingdom. Forgive me for not being much fruitful for you. Cleanse me from all my iniquities and give me a clean heart. If there is any unforgiveness in my heart towards others, please help me to forgive them completely, as you have forgiven my sins. Help me not to grieve the Holy Spirit indwelling in me. Help me to stay focused on you and not the world. Help me stay strong during trials and temptations. Help me to fight the good fight of faith. Restore the joy, peace and blessings that I have let the devil to steal because of my wilful disobedience. Have mercy upon me, cleanse me and heal my Spirit. In the precious name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
