A Prayer for Forgiveness
A PRAYER FOR FORGIVENESS
Text: Psalm 86.5: “For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.”
Teaching: God is abundant in mercy (kindness, favor) toward us and this verse shows willingness on God’s part to forgive (pardon, spare) us of our sins. We need to make time to talk to Him, repent, and ask Him for forgiveness of our sins. God stands ready and willing to forgive. Do not let a moment pass in which to let Satan have his way with you today.
Action Today: Examine yourself. Ask:
- “Am I in a proper relationship with God? “Are there sins I need to repent of?”
- “Is there a brother or sister that I have ill feelings towards? Do I need to go to them and ask for forgiveness?”
- Offer up a prayer seeking God’s forgiveness and resolve to learn from your shortcomings.
