Prayer of Repentance
In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. I tell you, now is the time of
God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2
1. Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior.
2. Sinner's Prayer From Scripture – (Psalm 51, King David)
Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; According to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my wickedness and guilt and cleanse me from my sin. For I am conscious of my transgressions and I acknowledge them; My sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned and done that which is evil in Your sight, so that You are justified when You speak [Your sentence] and faultless in Your judgment. I was brought forth in [a state of] wickedness; In sin my mother conceived me [and from my beginning I, too, was sinful]. Behold, You desire truth in the innermost being, and in the hidden part [of my heart] You will make me know wisdom. Purify me with [a]hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Make me hear joy and gladness and be satisfied; let the bones which 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 and steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit.
3. Prayer From Scripture Hosea 14: 1-3
O (your name), return [in repentance] to the Lord your God, For you have stumbled and fallen [visited by tragedy], because of your sin. Take the words [confessing your guilt] with you and return to the Lord. Say to Him, “Take away all our wickedness; Accept what is good and receive us graciously, So that we may present the fruit of our lips (gratitude). Assyria will not save us; We will not ride on horses [relying on military might],
Nor will we say again to [the idols who are] the work of our hands, ‘You are our gods.’ For in You [O Lord] the orphan finds love and compassion and mercy.”
