Thank You, Heavenly Father, that we who trust in Christ as our Saviour have redemption through the blood of Christ Jesus our Lord and the forgiveness of all our sins, in accordance with the riches of Your grace.
Lord, I have fallen so short of Your perfect standard. I know that I have no merit in me and no right-standing of myself. I know that without Christ, I would not be permitted to approach Your throne of grace, but praise God that the blood of Jesus Christ my Saviour, cleanses me and keeps on cleansing me from all my sin. Thank You. Father, that in Christ I am cleansed of all my unrighteousness by grace through faith in Him.
Lord, I so often fall short of Your standard, for I know that Your holy standard it is impossible in my own strength, but I also know that in Christ my sins that were scarlet have been washed white as snow through His cleansing blood. Wash and keep on washing me I pray, just as Peter asked Jesus to wash and keep on washing him, on the night that He was betrayed. Just like Peter I need You Lord, always, for in this sinful body I so often fall prey to the old sin nature that seeks to draw me back to the world and hamper my witness for Jesus.
Lord, I know that I am forever redeemed for which I praise Your holy name, but I now ask that You would help me to fly to You, to confess any sin or wrongdoing so that I may resume sweet fellowship with the Father, for You have promised believers that if we confess our sins You are always faithful to forgive us and cleanse us. I pray that day by day I may be washed with the Word so that I become more and more like Jesus and less and less like the person I used to be. In Jesus' precious name I pray,
Heavenly Father, I thank You that You sought me out and saved me by the mighty power of the blood of Jesus. Lord God, I have spent so many years pleasing myself and not paying attention to Your call on my life, and I realise that I have wasted so much precious time.
Forgive me I pray, for the selfish and rebellious way I realise I have been living, and I pray that in Your grace and mercy, You would allow me to redeem the time that I have wasted. Lord, I know that I can never relive the time that has gone, but I pray that You would give me the opportunity to live my life as I should have lived, to live the rest of my life as Your bond-servant, to submit to Your leading and guiding, to focus the eyes of my heart on the Lord Jesus, and to be led by Your Spirit to do only those things that are pleasing in Your sight.
Help me to use the time I have left wisely. May I not grow weary of well-doing, but rather may I run the race of life as Paul did, to win the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Take my life and let it be separated and consecrated for You alone. In Jesus' name,
Dear God, I have sinned against You and against my fellow man in thought and word and deed. I have no right to approach You in and of myself, but I have been told that Jesus Christ is Your only begotten and eternal Son and that He humbled Himself becoming a real man, a perfect sinless man who never sinned and fulfilled every Law that God the Father requires of all humanity. I have been told that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the price for my sins – all my sins – all my past, present and future sins – all my overt and hidden sins – all my sins, every single one - and that He willingly gave up His life on the cross so that anyone (including me), who would believe on His name, would not perish as sinners deserve, but be given the free gift of eternal life.
Lord, I was told that Jesus did this for me and that all I have to do to receive Your forgiveness is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and I will be saved, eternally saved, and given a new life in Christ. Lord, a lot of this is hard for me to understand but I do believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and that He rose again on the third day, has ascended into heaven and is sitting at the right hand of the Father, and that one day He will come back to take all who have trusted in Him into heaven to be with Him forever.
Lord, I do not deserve to be forgiven of my sins, but I ask that in Jesus' name Who even died for me, that for His sake, You would forgive me and redeem me and give me the new life that You have promised to those who believe in Him. Teach me how to live as You would have me live. Teach me Your will for You life.
Dear God, I don’t understand why Jesus would do this for me, but I believe with all my heart that He did and I thank You that You are faithful and just to make me one of Your children, as a free gift of grace, by faith in Him. Forever I will glorify and thank and praise You for what you have done in my life.
Dear God, I believe that Jesus was God incarnate, holy God Who became perfect Man. I believe that He died on the cross to pay the price for the sin of the world, and I believe that He died to forgive my sin. I believe that He rose again to break the power of sin and death in my life, and that by believing on Him, my sins are forgiven, truly forgiven, and I am born into God’s family. I believe that I have been forgiven as a gift of God’s grace, simply because I have trusted Christ as my Saviour. Thank You, God.
Lord, I do thank You that You died for me. Thank You, that You loved me enough to lay aside Your heavenly glory to become a man and identify with my sin so that by believing on You I may be identified with Your righteousness. Thank You, God.
Lord, I desire to turn from my sinful ways and turn to Christ. Help me to live as You would have me live. Teach me Your ways and may I grow in my faith, and God, I pray that I become more and more like Jesus. Thank You, God.
Lord, give me a teachable spirit so that I may grow in grace and grow in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Teach me I pray, and give me wisdom to know what is right and what is wrong. Thank You, God. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Lord and Gracious God, I want to thank You with all of my heart for the glorious plan that You purposed before the creation of the earth – that You would redeem sinful man by sending the eternal Son of God to become the prefect Son of Man, Who was willing to live a sinless life and to die a perfect death so that all who believe on His name would not be condemned but have eternal life and be made a part of God’s eternal family as His heavenly people.
Thank You, that Jesus became the sinless Lamb of God, “Who takes away the sin of the world”. That You, that God the Father is reconciling the world to Himself and no longer counting our sins against any of us who believe in the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, but rather is clothing us in His own spotless robe of righteousness, as His amazing gift of grace, which is received through simply believing on His name.
Thank You, for the multitudes of men and women that have received this amazing gift of grace. Thank You, that You have redeemed me along with all who were lost in sin and heading for eternal hell and everlasting separation from You, but who believed the message of salvation and trusted Christ as Saviour.
Thank You, that You now look on me as if I had never sinned, simply because I was placed “In Christ” the moment I believed on Him and was received into the family of God, and made an heir of God and joint-heir with Jesus Christ Himself. Thank You that there is no condemnation on any who have trusted the finished work of Jesus on Calvary’s cross.
Lord, the more I contemplate Your great grace, Your unconditional love, Your prefect righteousness and Your long-suffering faithfulness, I am overwhelmed by what You have done for me. But I thank and praise You that I have joined that mighty cloud of witnesses that have been born of the Spirit in the Church-age, as part of Christ’s body,and look forward to the day when we will all be together in Your presence for ever and ever.
Dear God, Let me learn from my mistakes, move forward in faith, and trust you so I can be reunited with my children in a home of our own.
