Prayer Of Deep Repentance

Have you succumbed to harmful habits that are hurting your faith and testimony? We’ve all been there at one time or another.

If guilt and shame now dot your life, and regrets are filling in the blanks of your story, take heart. God offers love, forgiveness, and restoration.

If this fits you, here is a prayer for repentance and restoration that can help you find renewed joy, hope, and life:

A Prayer for Repentance and Restoration

Lord Jesus, I’m tired of the sin struggle in my life. I feel distant from You. My choices have not led me into the right places. I’ve listened to the whispers of my enemy instead of Your words in Scripture, and the result has been disastrous.

I once walked with you, my heart tender to Your leading. Yet little by little, I exchanged Your truths for temptations and deceit that led me away from You.

Instead of taking thoughts captive and confessing them immediately, I allowed them to grow totally control. Repentance was not in my vocabulary.

Blame, cover-ups, or trying to reason and rationalize sin never work. They only give birth to deeper sin entanglements.

You created me in Your own image, Lord. You know my thoughts before I speak them. You x-ray my heart and see through my excuses and intentions. Your Spirit warned me, but I ignored You. Disappointment and discouragement have taken their toll on me.

So today I’m confessing my desperate need for You. You have promised that if we will confess our sin, You will forgive us and make us clean again. Lord, I truly need Your forgiveness. Repentance is on my heart and lips. I want to turn around and head another direction—back to You, Lord. But I need Your help.

Just as You created the world nothing, Lord, create a clean heart my “nothingness.” You paid for my sin with your own death. Restore my life and the fellowship we once shared together.

You don’t condemn me, and You won’t disown me; I am Your child forever. But I take all the blame—I own my own sin.

I am the one who broke fellowship with You and am crushed over the way I treated You and Your name.

Lord, root out the darkness and light up my life with Your holy presence. Help me understand what went wrong. Show me how my destructive patterns first began.

What did I allow to become more important than loving and honoring You? Why did I seek satisfaction in others or other things than You? You are the only One Who provides all my needs.

You fill up the soul with deep down joy and peace beyond all understanding.

Lord, may your restoration include new boundaries around my life. I can’t flirt with sin and not be hurt. In restoring me, teach me how to say no again to things which could harm myself or my testimony.

If my actions have wounded others, show me where and to whom I need to ask forgiveness or how to make amends. Help me to surround myself with positive encouragers who will hold me accountable and who will speak the truth in love.

Truly, shame melts away and we are healed when we confess to others and ask for their help.

I understand that my repentance won’t eliminate the consequences of my sin.

Knowing that You don’t hold our sins to our account—You remember them no more–and that You place them as far as the east is from the west both humbles me and fills me with amazement and gratitude.

No consequence could ever be as painful as knowing how my sin hurt You or how You suffered for me love. Your crucifying death gave me eternal life with You. Lord, You place grace next to my regrets and give me hope for a new future.

Thank You, Lord, that sin does not disqualify us. Instead, a runner who has fallen but who gets up again, I, too, am willing to start again and finish the race You have set for me.  

With Your restoration, Lord, perhaps I can help others find their way back to You again. I will not give my enemy the victory. Instead, I will accept Yours. Instead of a meltdown, with Your help I will allow Your Spirit to give me a hot heart for You, one that seeks You and wants to live for You the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for Your sweet forgiveness and promised restoration.

Never prayed for repentance before?

Pray this prayer for salvation:

Lord, I admit I am a sinner. I need and want Your forgiveness.

I accept Your death as the penalty for my sin, and recognize that Your mercy and grace is a gift You offer to me because of Your great love, not anything I have done. Cleanse me and make me Your child.

By faith I receive You into my heart as the Son of God and as Savior and Lord of my life. From now on, help me live for You, with You in control. In Your precious name,

A Prayer of Repentance for America

Prayer Of Deep Repentance

If you would please join me and take your positions in a place of humility and a contrite heart, laying face down, or in a kneeling position before the Lord.

If you are not physically able to do this God will honor you right where you are with whatever you are able to do even if you are laying in a bed right now.

Prayer of Repentance:

Father, in the name of Jesus, we come before your throne as your Army, with humble and contrite hearts on this day of repentance.

Father, as we step onto the battlefield of righteousness, we walk in a spirit of unity, with one heart, one mind, and one accord, to disarm and take away any legal right the enemy may have over your people, and your country called the United States of America.

Father, we decree and declare we will take back what belongs to you, through this act of target focused repentance that we are engaged in.

Father, in the name of Jesus, we repent for not having a humble heart, walking in pride, having haughty spirits, and attitudes, thinking because we are in leadership we don’t have to repent.

Father, we repent for not walking in a Spirit of Repentance daily and for not discipling others to do the same, knowing that an effective warfare starts with target focused repentance.

Father, in the name of Jesus, we repent for engaging in friendly fire, attacking others in the Body of Christ, shooting our own wounded, because we may not agree with that person.  We repent for our arrogance, murdering others with our words when your word says “thou shall not murder”.

Father, in the name of Jesus, we repent for having a religious, legalistic, and critical spirits, creating chaos, aiding the kingdom of darkness, and committing spiritual treason by dividing the brethren.

Father, we ask that you would heal the divide in your people, give us the strength, the maturity, and the discernment to push away everything that is separating us from you, from one another, and from operating as the one true army you have chosen us to be.

Father, in the name of Jesus, we repent for having an intellectual knowledge of you, but truly not knowing your ways.

Father, forgive us for the spiritual arrogance this has created, operating our intellect, versus your spirit, honoring you with our lips but our hearts are far from you.

Father, we repent for aiding the kingdom of darkness and committing spiritual treason by having an escapism mentality, taking ourselves the fight and for influencing and leading others astray down this same path.

Father, in the name of Jesus, we repent for having a spirit of cowardice, always taking a defensive posture and not going on the offensive when you gave us allthe power over
all the enemy.

Father, we decree and declare this day, that as your Army, we will go on the offensive from this day forward, no longer in retreat, but taking the fight to the enemy.

Father, we repent for taking ground for your Kingdom, but not leaving anything in place to hold that ground, allowing the enemy to come back in 7-fold worse, only having to fight harder to reclaim the ground that we freely gave away.

Father, we decree and declare, this day as your Army, that we will take ground for the Kingdom of God and we will hold that ground at all costs.

Father, we repent for not discipling people, and the next generation, to hold that ground we have taken, and to continue the fight.

Father, we ask in the name of Jesus, that you would give us a spirit of courage and boldness with the intensity that has never been seen in the history of mankind, to take back this country and this earth for your Klngdom.

Lord Jesus, you said we would not only do the things that you did, but even greater things we shall do.

Father, we decree and declare that the time is now for this to take place, we ask for greater power and authority, to do the things you have called us to do in these end times.

Father, in the name of Jesus, as your people we repent for not being the spiritual and moral compass that you have called us to be, for this country, and the entire world.

Father, we repent for being more concerned about the 4 walls of our churches, versus the congregations, and the lost.

Father, we repent for being more concerned about being politically correct, versus being truth seekers and truth speakers.

Father, we repent for walking in the fear of man, versus the fear of God.

Father, we repent for staying inside the 4 walls of a building, and not taking your gospel to the streets, and bringing in a harvest that is ready to be gathered.

Father, we repent for allowing defilement in our pulpits.

Father, we repent for allowing freemasonry, secrets, and homosexuality into our pulpits, and allowing its influence into your houses of prayer, and calling it Church.

Father, we repent for allowing immorality into our pulpits and its influence into our congregations.

Father, we repent for the divorce and the abortion rate in your Houses of Prayer, to be the same as the world.

Father, we repent for Houses of Prayer being in covenant with that entity called Baal, thru that demonic contract called the 501c3.

We repent for taking a bribe for a tax right-off, and staying silent for 30 pieces of silver, and opening the door for the demonic influence in our houses of prayer.

Father, we repent for being incorporated as your Houses of Prayer, allowing the state and the government to be the head of our ministries, versus you, Lord Jesus.

Father, we repent for separating ourselves from you and your body.

Father, we repent for not ruling and reigning, because we freely gave up that right for those 30 pieces of silver.

Father, we repent for having a slavery mentality.  Forgive us for not governing when instead wanting to be governed over.

Father, we repent for staying silent while Roe vs Wade was passed.

Father we repent on behalf of the Body of Christ, the American people, the leadership and the land, for the atrocity called abortion.

Father  we repent for allowing these aborted babies to become the food source for Baal, and allowing Baal to become the strong man over America.

Father, we repent on behalf of the people, the leadership, and the land, for the child sacrifices, the pedophilia, and the child sex trafficking that is taking place in our country on our watch.

Father, we repent for taking that blood money from the 501c3 that even the Pharisees knew not to take.

Father, we repent for the murdering of your prophets and the saints, for being drunk on the blood of the prophets and the blood of the saints.

Father, we repent for sacrificing your people on the altar of mammon, because we are more interested in money, big fine homes, and cars, versus the sanctity of life, and speaking out on the issues that matter to you Lord.

Father, I now ask that the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord would come over your people now, and that it would bring your people to an everlasting fear and awe of you.

Father, we repent for cursing your America, saying she should burn, when you wish that none would perish.

Father, we repent for not speaking life into your America to complete her destiny.

Target Focused Prayer:

Father, as we move into target focused prayer; we ask that you would remember the good things that your America has done, from the spreading of your gospel throughout the earth, to the blood being spilled on foreign soil, liberating countries so your gospel could flow.

Father, America has never received her harvest, so we decree and declare that Americas harvest is here now.

Father, you said that Americas harvest would come back to her 7-fold what the enemy has stolen, so we decree and declare that Americas 7-fold return is here now.

Father, you said that America would be the hub from which the end time harvest would be launched, to free the spiritually oppressed peoples of the earth.  We decree and declare that your will be done, to bring in over 1 billion souls into the Kingdom of God.

Father, we pray for your leadership over this country, your Army and the people of this country, that a fresh habitation of your Holy Spirit would fall, hover and brood over us.

Father, we decree and declare as your Army, that as this Holy Spirit habitation takes place, that you’re America on all levels WILL BE turned back to you.

Father, we pray for and bless President Trump and his administration.  We ask that you would give them the 7-fold spirit to operate in, the Spirit of the LORD, Wisdom, Revelation, Council, Might, Knowledge, and the Gear of the LORD.

Father, your hand is upon this president and we decree and declare that he will not be impeached, assassinated, or harmed in any way and that no weapon formed against him or his family will prosper.

Father, we have soiled garments; we ask that you would bring us into that place of being the spotless bride you have called us to be.

5 Prayers of Repentance from a Humble Heart

Prayer Of Deep Repentance

I thought long and prayed hard about what topic to cover on Day Two of the Prayers for All Seasons series.

One one hand, my “blogger brain” told me I needed to make it something appealing. Some clever concoction to keep our zeal fervent and our enthusiasm strong.

On the other hand, my “Christ-follower spirit” is aware that we don’t need clever concoctions conceived in human brains and worked out with human hands.

We need the power of the Holy Spirit.

I’m also very aware that prayers hindered are wasted prayers.

And nothing hinders our prayers quite unconfessed sin.

So whether it’s popular or not…

and whether or not it appeals to my sometimes-lukewarm-heart…

it’s critical that we devote a day early in this process toward a focus on repentance.

I’m confident that it won’t be among the most-shared posts in this series.

It won’t be the most pinned or d or tweeted.

And that’s okay.

Because at its very core, this series isn’t about any of that. It’s about you and me getting good and serious with God about prayer.

We need to get real with God.

And that starts with getting real about our sin. I can’t think of a better way to do that than praying the Scriptures for repentance.

Prayers of Repentance

1.)Thank God for His promise that if you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive your sins and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. (I John 1:9)

2.)Share with God that you are unable to discern the errors of your own heart. Ask Him to cleanse you from faults that you cannot see, as well as from sins you’ve committed intentionally.

Pray that you would be free from the dominion of sinful strongholds in your life, becoming blameless and innocent.

Ask God that the words of your mouth and the meditations of your heart would be acceptable in the sight of your Rock and Redeemer. (Psalm 19:12-14)

3.)Remind God of His promise that if His people who are called by His name humble themselves, and pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways, then He will hear from heaven and will forgive our sin and heal our land.

(2 Chronicles 7:14) Ask Him to do this very thing – to bring in your own heart a fresh awareness of the seriousness of your sin, and that this work would spread wildfire among His people.

4.)Repent of any distance between you and the Lord. Tell God of your desire to draw near to Him, and claim His promise to draw near to you.

Prayerfully seek His cleansing of your hands and His purification your heart. Spend some time searching your heart with seriousness and humility before the Lord. (James 4:8-10)

5.)Thank God for a godly grief that produces repentance that leads to salvation. Tell God that you will look for the fruits of this repentance in the hours and days ahead: “For see what earnestness this godly grief has produced in you, but also what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what punishment!” (2 Corinthians 7:9-11)

My dear heavenly Father, you know the depths of my sorrow over my sin. Even though it’s painful, I know this sorrow is a gift of grace.

I would far rather be aware of my sin and mourning over it, than to be oblivious of it and self-satisfied, because awareness of it is the first step toward confessing it, repenting of it, forsaking it, and turning back toward You.

How I thank You for granting me a fresh awareness of my sin before a holy God! Not so I can wallow or berate myself, but so I can come to the cross for cleansing. I cannot improve upon the prayer of David of Psalm 51, and so I offer it to You now.

Have mercy on me, O God,
according to Your steadfast love;
according to Your abundant mercy
blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin!
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me.

Against You, You only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in Your sight,
so that You may be justified in Your words
and blameless in Your judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Behold, You delight in truth in the inward being,
and You teach me wisdom in the secret heart.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones that You have broken rejoice.
Hide Your face from my sins,
and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from Your presence,
and take not Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
and sinners will return to You.

Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God,
O God of my salvation,
and my tongue will sing aloud of Your righteousness.
O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare Your praise.
For You will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
You will not be pleased with a burnt offering.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
Do good to Zion in Your good pleasure;
build up the walls of Jerusalem;
then will You delight in right sacrifices,
in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings;
then bulls will be offered on Your altar.

Having believed Your promise, I receive Your forgiveness, recognizing that You remove my sin as far as the east is from the west, choosing to remember it no more. There are no words to thank You for this grace. It’s in the name Jesus, my Savior, I pray. Amen.

I’ve found a biblical method that has helped me make great progress in setting goals and achieving them. I’d love to share it with you! Click here for more information.
