Lord, I have sinned and i beg for Your forgiveness

by Tom (Singapore)

Lord Jesus Christ, my Heavenly Father and Saviour, please help me to be employed again.

Lord, i have been unemployed since 2 Mar 2013. Lord, i know it is irresponsible of me to resign without a job but i eventually did so as i could not endure the humiliation and hostility while working there. i lost my self confidence and esteem and i have been suffering insomnia every night. Scenes of hostility and humiliation flashes in my mind in the darkness of the night.

Lord, i need a job so that i can continue to carry out my duty as a son to take care of my mom and dad. i am very worried about my mom. Though she has been putting up a brave front, giving me moral support, i know she is very worried. Lord, my heart aches as i can’t bear to see her suffer because of me. she has worked hard and made many sacrifices for the family when we were young. i should not cause her to suffer now. My sister has been very caring as well, she has voluntarily contributed my share of income to the family. i am thankful for their support but my current situation has affected their morale. Lord, please spare my family of this agony. Lord, i have sinned for having caused my family such agony.

Lord, i have sinned but please forgive me. Please be the beacon that lead me out of this darkness of my life. Lord, please let me find You for i am like a sheep lost in the wilderness, searching for its shepherd, longing to be in his safeguard again. Please let me enter Your house and ask for help for it was written in the scripture, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7).

Lord, only You can help me now for you hold the plan for the future. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11).

Lord, please hear my cries and prayers. Please have mercy on me and answer my prayers. Please let me have Your blessing and not abandon me. Please forgive me for my occasional lost in faith and sins. Please take care of my family, especially my mom and dad so that they remain healthy and free from any harm.

Lord, i have sinned and i beg for Your forgiveness. Lord, i feel like i am crucified and my time has stopped at Good Friday. Lord, please let Easter enters my life now.

Please help those who are also in need of Your help.

May Your Kingdom reign forever and ever.

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,


Poor sinner.
