A prayer for forgiveness from God
Father God, I kneel before You knowing that I have sinned against You in so many different ways.. in what I have said and done as well as in the dirty thoughts that flood through my mind.
I know that I am a sinner and as such I was the cause of the Lord Jesus being crucified on the cruel cross to take the punishment that I justly deserve – to pay that price for MY sins.
Lord I know that I am unworthy to come before You, but I ask Your forgiveness of all my sins, for the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ – Who died for me at Calvary.
Wash me I pray in the purifying blood of Jesus. Cleanse me from all my sins.Fill my heart with righteous thoughts and clean desires, for I no longer want to wallow in the cesspit of sin that has for so long separated me from You.
Thank You Lord that You have promised that all who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour will have their sins forgiven forever. Praise You Lord for Your grace and mercy on me -a sinner saved by grace, in Jesus name I pray,
Kid’s prayer for forgiveness
Dear Lord Jesus, I am sorry that I have been naughty and disobeyed my parents. I know I should listen to them but sometimes I don’t want to and then I get into trouble. I don’t want to disobey but sometimes I do and I know that it makes them mad – and then they are mad with me and I am mad back at them.
Dear Jesus, please forgive me for disobeying and help me to listen to my parents next time and to do what they tell me to do. Thank You that even when I am naughty You still love me.
Thank You Jesus for dying for me on the cross and thank You for taking the punishment for my sins when I am naughty. Thank You that You rose back to life again and went to heaven so that I can be forgiven and go to heaven too. Thank You that you never stop loving me even when I do disobey and help me to be good in the future. Thank You Jesus,
Father, the weight of my sins weigh heavily on my conscience and I know that there is no righteousness in me. I come to You pleading for Your great mercy, and repent of all the many sins that I have committed against You so grievously.
Lord I confess that in my pride and arrogance I even joked about Your existence and blasphemed You in word and deed and yet I discover that You sent Your only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to be the only acceptable sacrifice to pay the price for my sins.

Father, there are certain things that have recently happened to me that have been so painful that I am finding it quite difficult to forgive others – and yet I know that this is Your will for each one of Your children – knowing that forgiving others in our hearts has a beautiful secondary function, of opening up our hearts and lives to Your warming love and perfect peace.

Lord You have promised in Your word that Your grace is sufficient for every trial and each difficulty in life – and I trust that this means that Your grace is sufficient to bring me to that point of genuine and gracious forgiveness.And so I cast this unforgiveness at Your feet and pray that You would forgive ME for holding onto my unforgiving heart for so long – knowing that in Christ Jesus You have forgiven me so much.
Thank You Lord for dying on the cross for me and for forgiving all my sins – thank You that Your grace is sufficient for me – in Jesus name I pray,
Your death, O Lord, we commemorate, and your resurrection we confess, and your second coming we look for; and we ask of you mercy and compassion and we implore the forgiveness of sins. Your mercies be upon us all.
Prayers for the remission of sins can rightfully be called miraculous and healing. In the process of turning to God, we completely abstract from life's fuss and all we want is the generosity of our Father, his forgiveness for our actions, thoughts and intentions, which are caused by the weakness of the spirit and inability to resist the temptations of life.

A Prayer For Forgiveness
Tell me what to do when every action I take is subject to scrutiny,
When everywhere I turn, there's fire and I cannot choose
How I can proceed.
I don't know where else to go.
I need you and I trust in you, even when
I have doubt and even when I struggle to believe
Because I have no other choice, because one day this will all
Be over and I can look upon these circumstances with your ancient and omnipotent
But now, Lord,
My insides, my soul and my heart are burning,
And a parasite is eating me away much as
Job did when you taunted Satan back in the day.
I am not Job, and it is arrogance to think
That in some way I don't deserve this,
That is some way I am an innocent of the world's hell,
For we are all guilty of being sinners
And it was only when I turned to realized I was, too
That I turned to you in need.
Forgive me, a sinner.
I traverse the days ultimately unaware
If I could make it to the end without breaking down,
Succumbing to the weight of my neighbor's sorrow, of the anvils on my shoulders.
Sometimes I withdraw, press on the brakes, and do not allow myself to feel
The chains that bind me to not being able to move on.
Because I still have a life to live, work to do,
Money to make to survive, and I know, O my soul,
That sometimes suppression and looking the other way
Are just what I do and we all do to survive.
I pray that in these moments alone and in solitude
I am able to break open the floodgates, let open the suppression,
And allow myself to suffer as Job, David, Peter, Paul, and your son did
I have read Paul's text of Romans, and I cannot proceed
Knowing I have pushed it all away, knowing that I have not allowed myself the gift of being your
Beloved son, of being human.
We've all been there. The oh-my-goodness-what-did-I-just-do feeling you get after breaking up with someone is almost always inevitable, even if the breakup was justified. It tends to be easier when you have some anger or even hatred in your heart for the person with whom you're ending things. However, there are many times when that is just not the case.
Difficult long distance, lack of time, inability to commit, or sometimes you're just not feeling it anymore. Always remember to put yourself first, even if it is difficult at the moment.
Regardless of whether or not the reasoning behind a breakup was good, it still hurts to lose someone from your life. In relationships, your partner becomes part of your everyday routine, so going from seeing someone every day to not seeing them at all may be disorienting. They are called a significant other for a reason.
Being broken up with definitely hurts more, but the “dumpers” seem to get absolutely no sympathy when they still may be hurting. That being said, how do you get over the breakup that you initiated?
1. Think it through
The back and forth game in a relationship is never fun, so don't break up with someone just to get back together with them. Respect their emotions, and think it through before you make any harsh decisions. Remember, relationships aren't easy. Just because sometimes things may be difficult doesn't mean you have to throw everything away.
2. Create some distance
Make it easier on both of you and create distance. As difficult as it is to go from talking and seeing each other every day to not seeing each other at all, it has to be done. Unfollow them on social media and maybe even erase their number. The more you see them, especially once you see them happy, the more you're going to regret the breakup.
3. Remember why you did it
There will always be that post-breakup stage where you struggle to remember why you ended things. Talk about it with someone you trust or write it down. You're not going to lay in bed at night and reminisce on all of the bad times, and the good memories have the ability to overpower your thoughts. You broke up with them for a reason; remember that.
4. Keep yourself busy
Surround yourself with friends and family. Fill the gaps in your schedule that used to be occupied by your boyfriend or girlfriend. True friends will be supportive and have your back during this difficult time. Don't mope around missing them or else the recovery period will last even longer. You have to try to get over someone; it doesn't just happen at the snap of a finger.
5. Have some fun
The phrase “hoe-ing around” definitely has some negative connotations, but there is nothing wrong with meeting new people and putting yourself out there. When you're ready, of course, don't be afraid to go on dates and explore your options. Just because it didn't work out with one person does not mean it couldn't work out with someone else.
6. Acknowledge how you feel
The absolute worst thing to do is pretend that nothing ever happened and that everything is okay. You are allowed to feel sad, even if it was you who ended the relationship. Cry a little bit, confide in everyone's good friends Ben & Jerry, and really get in tune with your emotions. There will always be sad days, and there will always be happy days.
7. Treat yourself
The phrase “love yourself so no one has to” is definitely cheesy but it is so valid. Take this time alone to build yourself up to being the best form of yourself possible.
Pick up a new hobby that you're passionate about or get in shape, since we all know those late night pizza dates can help add a couple pounds.
Each relationship and break up you go through contributes to shaping you into the person that you're meant to become.
8. Rebel a little
This is my personal favorite stage of a breakup. In a relationship, it is normal for your partner to pull back on your reigns a little bit.
Everyone has a crazy side, so cut and dye your hair the way your ex didn't want you to, get that piercing they hate or start dressing the way that you always wanted to.
Don't do anything that you will regret, but the person that you're meant to be with will love you regardless of your rebellious decisions.
9. Take up some new responsibilities
It is undeniably special to be able to care for someone when you are in a relationship, and there is the potential to feel lost when you no longer have that person. Get a fish, take a leadership position in something you're passionate about or even get a job. Put your care into something new to fill the void.
10. Find your priorities
It is so easy to become consumed by a relationship. Take this time alone to realize what matters most. Focus on your grades, your friends, your family and the permanent things in life. Relationships come and go, but be sure to prioritize those who have always been there for you.
11. Wish them the best
At the end of the day, you broke up with him or her. Eventually, they will find happiness again. Do not waste energy being bitter and jealous.
As hard as it is to let someone go, it is even harder to hold on to something that is no longer there. Remember that if you are able to move on, they are too.
Remember that they were special to you and that you cared about them at one point. Wish them the happiness that you are searching for yourself.
A breakup is a breakup. It hurts for both parties no matter what. Although most would see the person who is dumped as the victim, nobody really wins when something in which you invested time is over. When all is said and done, never settle for any less than you deserve in a relationship.
