Prayer for forgiveness

by Thelma (Hagerstown , Md.)

God in heaven first I want to acknowledge that you are Lord of everything. I thank you for grace and mercy. When I am weak you strengthens me. You are a loving and forgiving God.

Today I ask for forgiveness of my sins and selfishness.

You forgave me of my sins. God no one is perfect and we all have come short of your glory.

I truly repent and is ashamed of my behavioral. I ask for forgiveness for all the seen, known and unseen sins I have committed. I need your help today and everyday.

Today I ask that you soften my heart. Touch me and change me. Help me to reach out to others who are hurting. Life is hard and sometimes it seems unfair. It is in those moments when darkness comes that my faith starts to fail . I now know that you are light to my darkness. As I fall to my knees with streams of tears falling down, is when I know you are there.
God thank you for your hand of protection.
Thank you for your peace. Weeping may endure for a night, but JOY comes in the morning. Joy will come if we open our hearts and mind.
Forgiveness free me to move forward and keep my eyes upon the one who is the author and finisher of my faith. May you feel HIS presence today and everyday . God is love. I know God loves me .
