Prayers of Repentance

repentance

In today’s world of “greasy grace,” people are on a slippery slope that leads further and further away from the Lord.  Grace goes hand in hand with repentance.  But what is repentance?  Exactly is involved in repentance?  Let’s see what the Bible says about repentance:

“So REPENT (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send [to you] the Christ (the Messiah), Who before was designated and appointed for you–even Jesus.” (Acts 3;19-20)

“If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and continuously cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, though an action.  If we say we have not sinned, we contradict His Word and make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us [the divine message of the Gospel] is not in our hearts.” (I John 1:9-10)

Repentance starts with the conviction of the Holy Spirit.  You have this icky feeling in your inner man that feels bad about something you’ve said or done.  For example, you are at a store and the cashier gets an attitude with  you.   You give it right back to him or her when you know the Word says to walk in love to be a light to those who abuse you.  You leave and get that feeling in the pit of your stomach that you have messed up with the Lord.

Go immediately to the Lord and confess that you have sinned by disobeying what you know God expects of you.  Ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you from this sin.  Then repent and make up your mind to walk in love going forward.  That is repentance.  God will immediately put that sin under the Blood of Jesus where it is erased forever and not remembered by God.  The added benefit is that Satan can’t use it against you!  Remember, he is the accuser of the brethren.  It is our unconfessed and unrepented of sins that he is able to use against us.  Repentance is one of the most powerful weapons we have to defeat Satan!

Repentance is a regular thing.  When we say the sinner’s prayer and repent, we are repenting and turning away from our old sinful life and choices we made and embracing God’s way going forward.  Our sins are washed away by His Blood.  The key is to acknowledge those sins and confess them out loud to God.  The old saying “confession is good for the soul” is very true!  Once we enter the kingdom of God, we still live in a fallen world and it takes time for God to clean us up.  So yes, you will mess up..we all mess up occasionally.  Repentance is a beautiful thing!


Here are some prayers of repentance that will help you in this area.  These prayers range from initial salvation to everyday stumbles to repenting from sexual sin.  Sexual sin is serious with God because it is such a huge doorway that Satan can use against you.  Sometimes it’s hard to repent but you have to decide what you want more: the world or God.  If you choose God, you will follow through with repentance because that is where it starts.

Blessings everyone…

      So glad you are now in the palm of His hand! Repentance is beautiful. It’s a fresh start. Our Father makes all things new.

      Father, I come into agreement with John right now that Your presence and Spirit will transform him more and more into the very image of Jesus Christ. I praise You that John is even now living above the besetting sins we all face. He is a son in Your kingdom and therefore he is a part of the royal nation! Thank You Father for Jesus Who gives us the blessed privilege of repenting and getting clean from the inside out. Bless John today and every day Lord and let him come up higher and higher in You with each passing day. In Jesus’ name I pray..Amen and Amen.

      God bless you John. I will be praying for you. Draw closer to Him every day and you will be amazed at how your life will change! The closer you are to Him, the less hold sin can have on you. I know, I have overcome such evil ways. Just know He loves you very very much!

      Hi! Thanks for the heads up on the compatibility issue. I’m not surprised Explorer has issues though. I use Chrome for everything. I’ll check into it and see if there are any Wodpress tools that can help with IE. Thanks for visiting!
