I praise Your name, Heavenly Father, for the blood of Jesus, which has cleansed me of all my sins and identified me with the righteousness of Christ.

I praise You for Your amazing grace and the wonder-working power of His blood, and it in His, precious name that I pray, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You that when Christ died, He paid the price for my sins and broke the power of sin in my life. In Him, I have fellowship with You and free access to the throne of grace.

I am sorry for doing things that were displeasing to You and omitting to do those things that were pleasing to You but thank You that You are faithful and just to forgive all my sins and to keep on cleansing me from unrighteousness. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

Bedtime Prayer For Forgiveness

Thank You Lord that You are the almighty God Who forgives all our sins and pardons all our wrongdoings, and I just want to ask Your forgiveness for the times today what I have not truly  loved You as I ought  - with all my heart and soul and mind and strength. Forgive me I pray for the times that I sought to carry out my own will in preference to Yours.

Thank You that I have been washed by the blood of the Lamb and have been made righteous in Your sight by faith in Jesus Christ my Saviour. But Lord, just like the disciples in the upper room, I need my “feet” to be washed by You, my heart to be cleansed in the power of the Holy Spirit and my sins to be forgiven - knowing that You are a faithful God who is ready and willing to forgive us our sins and to cleans us from all unrighteousness.

Forgive me for wanting my own way rather that seeking You first in everything. Help me to look to Jesus every moment of the day and may I sleep soundly as I prepare to go to sleep.  Thank You that Your mercies are new every morning.  and thank You for Your great faithfulness towards me and to all those that have trusted in Christ 

Help me to rest soundly tonight, so that I may wake refreshed in the morning and be ready and equipped to do Your bidding. Open my eyes to see You and my ears to hear Your voice speaking to me and lead me in the way of righteousness – from this day forward, I ask in Jesus name,


“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Praying through 1 John 1:10

Heavenly Father, how I praise and glorify Your holy name that my sins are forgiven by faith in Christ, and that I can enjoy sweet fellowship with You. I confess I have no righteousness of my own and do not deserve to receive Your grace and favour. But thank You that my hope rests on Christ. Dear Father, too often I find myself allowing fleshly tendencies to influence my life choices. Forgive me for the times I have left my first love, behaved arrogantly, or failed to listen to Your gentle promptings. Restore to me the joy of my salvation. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN. 

“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”
