Father God, be gracious to me I pray, according to Your loving- kindness. Father, my sins are heavy against me and my soul is troubled.. for the many wrongs I have done against You and for the many evil thoughts and unholy attitudes I have allowed to influence my heart and rule my life, for far to long.
I have sought to condone my wrongdoings, and ignore the voice of my conscience within.. and I ask Your forgiveness for my foolish pride, in ignoring the gentle promptings of Your Holy Spirit.
Forgive me I pray, and restore to me the joy of Your salvation.. for You have promised that all who truly confess their sins will be forgiven and returned back into a right relationship with You - and cleansed from all unrighteousness.
Lord the sacrifice of my heart is brokenness before You, My soul is truly contrite and my desire is to return into a right relationship with You. I know that the consequences of my wrong choices may remain with me for a long time – but I ask that in Your grace and mercy You would forgive my sins and cleanse my soul and restore me into a right relationship with Yourself – and my heart will rejoice in God my Saviour, in Whose name I pray,
