The Cheating Wife’s Prayer of Repentance

Forgive me Lord.., I have sinned against You and followed after my own selfish way. I been drawn away from my husband’s side, who loves me - and whom I love dearly, into the arms of another man, due to my own lustful desires and foolish pride.

I know adultery is so wrong and yet I refused to listen to the warning promptings from within.. even through I knew that out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies – and of course adultery.

I confess my infidelity before You Lord and my sin is ever before me.. and yet I know that You are a gracious God.. Who forgives the sins of Your truly repentant children. Cleanse me from this evil behaviour, which has caused so much heartache and pain for so many different people.

Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow, and in Your grace  and mercy, I pray that I may not have destroyed our marriage forever.. but that in Your pity and mercy You would help us to renew our wedding vows, so that we may step out into the future together, strengthened by this painful period but trusting in You to guide us into deeper communion with each other.. and with You.. this I ask in Jesus name,
