A Christian’s Prayer of Repentance

December 19, 2019

Oh God, I did wrong today. I thought I could control myself, but I failed.

I admit I sinned, and I come before you not to beg forgiveness, but to accept it. You, in Your great mercy, have already forgiven me for this sin. All I need to do is accept it.

I am not condemned as I stand before You.

There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Lord, I have an evil, wicked heart, and I can’t control it. I’m not making excuses, and I fully take my rightful responsibility for my actions.

But I do need your help in this matter. Please give me the strength, through Your Spirit, to endure.

Thank You for forgiving me, God. Thank You for sacrificing so much so that I could stand here now.

I pray now in the name of Your Son and my Savior.
