Prayer for forgiveness and guidance

by Pedro (Staten Island, NY)

Dear lord;

I have strayed away from you and you have shown me how wrong I am through my daily struggles with my life. I come to you on my knees asking for forgiveness and a way back to you lord. I know that you never left my side, but I have been ignoring you oh lord. My family, whom mean the world to me, is falling apart because of this. My selfish ways have pushed my marriage further apart and my kids are caught in the middle. They have no fault lord, help me help them to understand that. Lord I ask with open mind and soul to bless my wife, kids, and family. Keep them safe from all evil and temptation and forgive us all for our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
