Patriots' Prayers - Personal Repentance

Patriots' Prayers is about praying for our country, repenting and seeking God's forgiveness as a nation. But we must not forget that a country is made up of individuals, and we need to repent and seek forgiveness as individuals, too.  This week's prayer is a personal prayer of repentance. Please feel free to pray this prayer as is, or to adjust it to your own particular needs and circumstances. 

Prayer of Personal Repentance 

Heavenly Father, my good and loving Lord, I acknowledge all the sins which I have committed every day in my life, whether in thought, word, deed, or by omission.

I am sincerely sorry for having offended you. I ask forgiveness for all the times I failed to make you Lord over my life. Forgive me for those times I have broken your commandments. Forgive me for not loving you with all my heart, soul, and mind; for not loving my neighbor as myself; and for disrespecting the temple of Your Holy Spirit by not taking better care of my health. Forgive me for not treating others as I want to be treated.

Please forgive me for the sins of pride, greed, lust, wrath, gluttony, envy, and sloth. Forgive me for my lack of self-control and discipline, as well as all other forms of unrighteousness. 


I ask for forgiveness from the depths of my heart for offending You and others, and repent of my old ways. Help me by Your grace to change, to sin no more, to embrace your law, and to walk in the way of righteousness. I reject worldly standards, seeking live Your standards instead. May I praise and glorify You all the days of my life. In the Name of Jesus the Messiah I pray. Amen.
