About the Repentance Prayers 

Sometimes we just don’t know how to pray effectively, especially if we are new to all this.  The Repentance Prayers section of this blog has several prayers that have the Word of God woven into them to help you repent effectively.  These prayers are guides to help you.  Eventually, as your relationship with Him deepens in intimacy, you won’t need these prayers as much.  You can just talk it out with Him from your heart.  Keep in mind that speaking these prayers without faith or a heart change is futile.  They are just words on a page without a heart of repentance.  The prayers in this section are broken into categories that can be referred to easily.  You can use this section to help others get free as part of your ministry!


 

TEACHING ON REPENTANCE

What is Repentance?

 Repentance is defined in Webster’s Dictionary as “to feel or show that you are sorry for something bad or wrong that you did and that you want to do what is right.”  Repentance is making the conscious decision to turn from your current choices and embracing God’s will for your life.  You can’t walk East and West at the same time.  Your back will be facing one direction or the other.  Repentance is making the decision to stop doing it your way and letting God fill your life with His plans and purposes.

Repentance is the very first step in salvation.  In fact, it is impossible to receive salvation WITHOUT repentance.  John the Baptist came before Jesus preaching repentance.  Matthew 3:1-2 says “In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”  The Kingdom of God has come to mankind and repentance is the gateway to this kingdom.  After Jesus returned from His time in the wilderness, He began to preach repentance as well.  Matthew 4:17 says “From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  Without repentance, it is impossible to be accepted by God.  It is through repentance that grace comes.  And grace will not be applied to a person’s sin unless there is repentance.

Repentance is acknowledging that you have missed the mark and fallen short of God’s glory.  Romans 3:23 says “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.”  In Alcoholics Anonymous the first step in recovery is acknowledging that you have a problem with alcohol.  Likewise, the first step in repentance is acknowledging to God your sinful state.  Repentance is making the conscious choice to turn and go in the other direction—towards God.  Repentance is NOT saying “I’m sorry Lord” and continuing to do the things you have been doing.  True repentance with bear the fruit of it.

John the Baptist told the Pharisees to start bearing the fruit of repentance.  Matthew 3:7-9 says “But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “Brood of vipers!  Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?  Therefore, bear fruits worthy of repentance, and do not think to say to yourselves, “We have Abraham as our father.”  For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.”  John sure didn’t pull any punches, did he?  True repentance will be evident in your words and in your behavior.

Why do I have to Repent?

The Word of God is clear on why it is necessary for us to repent of our sins.

  • Isaiah 30:15 says “For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel: In repentance and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and faith shall be your strength.” But you would not.”
  • Acts 3:19 says “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”

II Corinthians 7:9-10 says “Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that your sorrow led to repentance.  For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing.”

There is no remission of sin without repentance because repentance is directly tied to the Blood of Jesus.  Hebrews 9:22 says “And according to the law, almost all things are purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.”  The Blood of Jesus cannot be applied to anything other than a truly repentant heart.

God is very orderly.  He has set the path to salvation for us to follow.  It has to be done His way or it simply cannot be done.  Entrance into the Kingdom of God requires the ID of repentance.  We are not legally allowed to drive a vehicle in America without a license to do so.  The only way we can get behind the wheel is to be able to prove to a police officer that we have permission to be on the road.  Repentance is our “license” to enter the Kingdom of God.  Without it, we are outside the kingdom and subject to Satan’s attacks.

Repentance has more to do with the state of our heart before God than the words of our mouth.  Saying “I’m sorry I had sex with that person Lord” but in your heart you know you would do it again should the opportunity arise.  This is NOT repentance.  It’s not even a sincere apology!  It is rebellion and it puts you squarely in Satan’s realm and vulnerable to his attacks.

Why do I have to repent?  Because God’s mercy cannot be applied to your life without confessing and turning from the sin.  Jesus already paid the price.  You are already forgiven, but it cannot be APPLIED to your life until you confess with your mouth and turn away from it.  You might say “but I did repent twenty years ago when I asked Jesus into my heart…doesn’t that count?”  When you became born-again, and you repented of your sinful lifestyle the Blood of Jesus was applied, but we live in a fallen world and sometimes we mess up.  Repentance is required for disobedience, for wrong attitudes, and for not loving people, to name a few.  Faith is now.  We live in the NOW.  What are you doing today?  Let’s look at what the book of Ezekiel says about this:

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me: When I say to the wicked, You shall surely die, and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.  Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.  Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die; because you did not give him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.  Nevertheless, if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; also, you will have delivered your soul.” (Ezekiel 3:17-21 NKJV).

God is the God of the NOW.  Today is the day of salvation.  Are you serving Him today?  You can’t live in the past.  When a person really meets Jesus Christ, they are never the same.  It is impossible to have an encounter with Him and remain the same.  A TRUE conversion to Christianity will bear the fruit of it and that fruit comes from true repentance.

We must all take inventory of our spiritual lives before God on a regular basis.  If our hearts convict us we need to repent and get things settled.  We are not promised tomorrow.  That is not to say that He is waiting to throw us into Hell if we say a cuss word and then die of a heart attack before we say, “I repent Lord.”  I’m not saying that.  I’m saying that your heart must be tender and pliable in His hands.  That is a repentant heart.  He can work with a repentant person.  When our hearts are repentant, we feel His conviction immediately.  It is at this point when we go to Him and repent and get cleansed by the Blood of Jesus.

There is a parallel world that we, who are on the earth are not fully aware of.  It is the spirit world.  It is the realm where the Kingdom of God is.  John 4:24 says “God is a Spirit and those who seek to worship Him, must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”  To understand repentance, we have to understand how sin affects us in the spirit-world.

Sin came into the earth through the first humans: Adam and Eve.  This brought the sin-nature into every human being born since that time.  We are born heading for destruction.  The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) Jesus Christ came, lived a sinless life, gave His life on the Cross and rose from the grave three days later for one purpose: to reconcile all people back to the Father.  He paid the price, and redemption is there for us when we repent of our sins and ask Jesus Christ to be Lord of our lives.  Jesus defeated all the power of Satan on the Cross and through His resurrection from the grave.  If we sin, Satan starts licking his lips because he knows he can attack us using our sins as weapons against us.   Let’s look at two scenarios

Jimmy has never been to church.  His whole life he has done what he wanted when he wanted and the way he wanted.  He was in control of his life, or so he thought.  Jimmy loved to party, and he was the life of the party.  Jimmy lived like there was no tomorrow.  If Jimmy were to die at this moment, he would go to Hell because Jesus’ Blood has not washed away his sins through repentance and forgiveness.  He’s lost and can do nothing to save himself.  But there is a friend in Jimmy’s life that God wants to flow through to give him the opportunity to repent and come to Jesus.  This person’s name is Ray.  Ray knows God wants him to talk to Jimmy, but he is afraid of what Jimmy will say to him and about him to others.  So, he doesn’t say a word.  Jimmy gets behind the wheel after a night of partying and dies in a car crash.  He is now lost forever.  Jimmy did not repent.  His died in his sins.  He went to Hell and will eventually end up in the Lake of Fire with Satan and his angels.  If Ray would have obeyed God when the Spirit spoke to him, things may have been different.  God loves everyone very much and it hurt His heart to lose Jimmy because Ray was afraid.

Now let’s reverse this and Ray hears God’s voice and jumps in excitement to share the Gospel with Jimmy!  Ray calls Jimmy up and asks him to go to lunch with him.  Jimmy is hungover from the night before and lately, has been getting tired of all the partying.  He’s even wondering if there is more to life than this.  They meet and sure enough, the Holy Spirit directs Ray when to speak to Jimmy.  Jimmy feels the conviction of the Holy Spirit for his sinful life and makes the decision to follow Jesus.  He repents right there and gets cleansed with the Blood of Jesus.  Jimmy doesn’t die in that car crash because he quit drinking and partying and went on to win souls for Jesus. 

Jimmy quit living like he did previously.  He quit hanging around the bad influences.  He quit drinking and he started walking in the Christian lifestyle.  That is repentance!  A soul was saved from destruction because of one man’s obedience.

Repentance is not a one-time event.  The Apostle Paul says, “I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.” (I Corinthians 15:31).  If we are diligent to establish an intimate relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ, we can overcome sin every day.  Can we say we’ll never fall short of His glory?  No.  The odds are we will mess up sometimes, but we don’t have to.  But if we do, be quick to repent. and don’t let the sun go down on a sin else it will gain a foothold and become a stumbling block.  Repentance is like taking a spiritual shower.  It is a precious gift from God.  Repentance is a powerful weapon to defeat Satan’s attacks.  Repentance is a beautiful word.

Repentance and Grace

In today’s world, repentance is a four-letter word.  They teach that grace covers sins, and it does, but they are leaving out the ingredient of repentance.  The grace of God is released into a person’s life once a repentant heart cries out to God.  The Blood of Jesus is the only thing that eradicates sin from our lives and the Blood of the Lamb won’t be applied without repentance.  It is just that plain and simple.  No amount of wishing it were otherwise will change that.

People always want their cake and eat it too.  They want their ticket to heaven, but they want to enjoy the pleasures of the world at the same time.  Sooner or later you will find out it’s just a fairy tale and believe me, you don’t want to find out when you die and are facing eternity in the Lake of Fire.  There are lots of people in Hell who can testify to the reality of believing in the “greasy grace” doctrine.

Did you know that repentance has to be granted by God?  His grace is what moves the Holy Spirit to convict you of sin.  Repentance is a gift from God, because without the conviction of the Holy Spirit, you will just go along without realizing the peril you are in.  It is for this reason that God has told His people to always pray for those who are lost and outside the kingdom!

Intercessory prayer brings the grace to grant repentance to the lost!  There is nothing more powerful OR pleasing to God than to pray for the lost.  When someone is steeped in sin and comfortable with it, they need the intercessory prayers of the people of God to grant them repentance.  What does this mean?  When repentance is granted, the Holy Spirit will begin to draw them to God.  They will begin to feel bad about their sin.  That is the conviction of the Holy Spirit.  He is the ONLY One who brings conviction of sin.  It is at this point that the person has the opportunity to choose to repent or continue on in their sin.

We all have been given a free will to choose God or our own way.  The person will either repent and turn away from their sin or reject the conviction and continue on in the sin.  As long as someone is praying for that person, God will continue to draw them; even if they reject Him time and again.  Don’t stop praying for the lost!  There is always a chance as long as they are alive.

Let’s look at this scenario: II Timothy 2:24-25 says “And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.”

The last time we saw Jimmy, he was off and running full steam ahead for God.  Boldly proclaiming the Gospel and winning souls!  But Jimmy is a young Christian, not fully mature in the Lord and he still has areas in his life that are weak and the enemy works in those areas to cause him to sin.  One of these areas is his ex-girlfriend.  He was so in love with her, but she wants nothing to do with God.  Because their relationship was sexual, it is difficult for Jimmy to pull completely away from her.  They have a strong sexual bond or “soul-tie” that Satan uses to pull Jimmy back into sexual sin.  Jimmy ran into her one evening and ended up going home with her.  Afterward, the conviction of the Holy Spirit was all over Jimmy.  He felt terrible because he knew he had hurt the Lord Jesus.  Jimmy made the decision to completely break away from his ex-girlfriend and told her so.  He left and went home and repented before God sincerely.  The grace of God was issued to him and he was cleansed by the Blood of Jesus.  He felt so clean! 

The grace issued to Jimmy was able to keep him strong in this area.  The Lord broke the soul-tie between them and he no longer felt the same about her.  Jimmy was quick to repent and because he was, God immediately blessed him with grace and forgiveness—and victory in this area!  Grace and repentance go hand in hand.  Repentance unlocks the blessing of God’s grace and God’s grace empowers us to overcome sin.

The Protocol of Repentance

There is a protocol to repentance because you are bringing your sin-stained life to the Creator of the universe for cleansing.  He is the Almighty One.  There is nothing haphazard about anything God does.  Everything has a specific purpose.  The protocol of repentance is as follows:

  • Acknowledge that you need forgiveness of sin – This is the most critical part of the whole process because when you can acknowledge your sin, then you will know that repentance has been granted to you. Remember, that repentance is in the HEART, not the head.  God looks on the HEART and He weighs the motives of the heart.  A person that says “I’m sorry Lord, but I just can’t forgive that person” has no true repentance in their heart.  They want to hold on to bitterness and unforgiveness.  The Bible says in II Corinthians 7:10 “For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.”  God has to give it to you!  Part of His GRACE is the issuance of repentance.  It is the conviction of the Holy Spirit that brings us to the place where we can actually acknowledge that we have sinned or are a lost sinner.
  • Confess your sins to God through prayers of repentance – The next step is to tell God all about the sin. You can tell Him because He knows about it anyway!  Just lay it all out there honestly and directly.  GRACE comes in with the boldness to speak to God directly and honestly.  The Hebrews 4:16 says that “we can come boldly to His throne of GRACE to find help in times of trouble.”  There is always a pile of trouble where sin is!  Run to Him when you mess up.  Take that spiritual shower and He will restore you so completely your sin won’t even exist.  It is blotted out and erased by the Blood of Jesus.  Isn’t that good news?  Isn’t God so good?
  • Receive by faith His forgiveness through the Blood of Jesus – The next step is to receive His forgiveness. Believe and expect His forgiveness to wash away your sin completely.  Suppose you are a guest in someone’s house and they bring you to a beautiful bathroom to use while you are there.  It’s full of all the amenities that make a great bathroom a great bathroom.  But if you just stand and admire it but don’t use it, it is not doing you any good.  It’s the same thing with God’s grace and forgiveness—you have to step into the shower to get clean.
  • Stop doing the sinful activities and start following Jesus and His ways with all your heart. – This is the final step in the protocol of repentance. However, this step cannot be accomplished unless the repentance is TRUE and SINCERE.  When Jesus touches your life, you are never the same.  When His forgiveness and His Blood cover you, your life WILL bear the fruit of it.  Like Jimmy, when he repented, he gave up his girlfriend for Jesus.  Following Jesus will require sacrifices to be made by each of us.  If you are truly in love with Jesus, there is nothing and I mean NOTHING that can compare to His presence in your life!

Examine your heart and life every day and if you feel the conviction of the Holy Spirit in a certain area, be quick to repent and bring it to God.   There is nothing more refreshing than a hot, steamy shower after a hard day’s work.  You just feel good!  It is the same with repentance.  The Blood of Jesus washes away the filthiness of sin and we are squeaky clean before our God and Father.  Isn’t God good?

Repentance is part of the Christian walk because we live in a fallen world where the temptation to fall short of the glory of God is a reality we must be aware of.  We can fall short with our attitudes, our faithlessness, our words and our deeds.  However, it is NOT impossible to live sinless before our God.  The closer you get to Him, the less sin’s power has over you.  You truly can be hidden in Christ in God where you can live above it.  For this reason, it is very important that we all spend quality time with God every day.  This communication time with Him will bring the conviction of sin and we can deal with it right then.

When you overcome the sin in your life through the protocol of repentance, you will discover the true meaning of living.  A life spent following the Lord is the greatest adventure that you will ever know, and repentance plays a crucial role in your life with Jesus.

The Results of Repentance

What are the results of repentance?  What happens when you truly repent?  There are two main areas that showcase the fruit of repentance.  The first area is your life on the earth and the second area is in the spirit world.  Let’s look at each of these areas a little closer.  Your life will show what is going on in your heart.  Your words and your decisions will show what is in your heart.  When true repentance is done, the fruit it bears is the fruit of RIGHTEOUSNESS.  What does this mean?  It means that if the Holy Spirit convicted you of something in your life that is not in God’s best plan for you, such as smoking, you will no longer smoke.  If He convicted you of drinking, you would stop drinking or find help in getting off alcohol or drugs.  If He convicted you of sexual sin, whether it is heterosexual or homosexual, fornication or adultery, you would no longer be doing it.

Note that the only sexual activity ordained by God in His Word is a Biblical marriage between one man and one woman.  Anything else is outside of His perfect will and outside the Kingdom.  Engaging in it will be sin or falling short of His standard in this area.  Does this mean that God hates anyone who is participating in these acts?  No!  He loves, loves, loves everyone.  However, these activities result in a split in the relationship with God and there is no way to return except through true repentance and restoration of the relationship by God.  The list could go on for a long time, but the point is that when true repentance is made in a person’s life, there will be a visible change in their life.  Be it in their words, or their deeds.

The result of repentance has a direct impact in the spirit world—namely Satan’s realm.  When we sin, Satan’s forces take note of it.  If we fail to repent quickly, Satan begins to build a legal “case” against us in the Court of Heaven.  We see this truth in Revelation 12:10 “Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.”  Satan is relentless in his pursuit of our destruction.  Because Jesus defeated him so completely on the Cross, he has to use our UNREPENTANT sins against us.  Let’s look at this scenario:

Jimmy has been serving the Lord for some time now and has grown a lot.  He has overcome a lot of besetting sins.  Jimmy got so busy doing things for the Lord that he forgot about his personal relationship with Him.  His prayer life slacked off, his Word studies faded and soon he began to watch TV shows that he knew were anti-Christ.  Occult horror movies were what he used to watch when he was in the world.  His life grew cold towards God through this compromise.  Unknown to Jimmy, Satan had built a case against him and took it to the Court of Heaven.  He demanded to sift Jimmy like wheat.  He almost got Peter, why try for not Jimmy too?  Jimmy opened the door for him through sin.  The sin of prayerlessness, disobedience to God’s known and perfect will for his life.  Jimmy was oblivious because his conscience was seared from the sin.  But Ray, Jimmy’s long-time friend got a burden to pray for him from the Holy Spirit.  So, every night Ray lifted Jimmy to the Lord for repentance to be granted.  For his spiritual eyes to be opened.  The Lord heard Ray’s prayers and granted grace towards Jimmy.  In other words, Satan was not allowed to sift him.  He was granted a space of time to repent.  The Holy Spirit began working in Jimmy’s heart and gave Ray another opportunity to talk to him.  Through the gift of repentance, Jimmy came to his senses and returned wholeheartedly to the Lord.

The beauty of repentance is that it completely takes the wind out of Satan’s sails against you!  When we repent, and the Blood of Jesus is applied to the sin, it is completely dissolved and evaporated like a puff of smoke.  Then the Father has the pleasure of telling Satan the case is dismissed.

Repentance is a gift and a weapon at the same time.  To overcome Satan’s legal maneuvers in the Court of Heaven, it takes quick repentance to eliminate the legal ground he has built against us.  Remember this: in the spirit world, it is all about LEGALITIES.  God has set forth eternal laws that the entire universe is bound by and that includes human beings.  Satan knows this very well.  Repentance is the knockout punch to stop his evil plans against us!

The Mercy of God and Your Created Value

What is our created value?  It is the value that God the Father placed on each one of us.  How many of us know that God has a really big heart?  Did you know that you have ALWAYS been in His heart?  He loved you from the foundation of the world because you were in His heart.  Your life and purpose were in His heart.  There is not a single person like you.  Even if you are an identical twin, you are still unique—one of a kind.  God doesn’t have any molds when He created us.  We are a work of art He delights in.  We are all an original masterpiece!

The Mercy of God

The mercy of God is incredible.  He is so longsuffering!  His mercy is rooted in His great love for every person ever born into the earth.  He loves to show mercy and loving-kindness.  The Psalms are full of scriptures on His great mercy.

  • Psalm 86:5 ~ “Lord, You are so good to me, so kind in every way and ready to forgive, for Your grace fountain keeps overflowing, drenching all Your lovers who pray to You.” (The Passion Translation)
  • Psalm 13:5-6 ~ But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. (KJV)
  • Psalm 25:6-7 ~ “Forgive my failures as a young man and overlook the sins of my immaturity. Give me grace, Lord!  Always look at me through Your eyes of love—Your forgiving eyes of mercy and compassion.  When You think of me, see me as one You love and care for.  How good You are to me!” (The Passion Translation)

Our Created Value

We are EVERYTHING to the Father.  Our value to Him is worth the death of His Son.  He knew when He made the move to create Adam, that he would fall and give dominion of the earth to Satan.  Yet God had ALREADY made arrangements to redeem us.  Revelation 13:8 says “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast — all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.”

When Lucifer saw the dominion and authority that Adam had, he became envious and iniquity was found in him.  God then drove him from Eden.  At this moment, he fell as the covering cherub and lost his identity.  He is now called the Adversary or the Accuser, which means Satan.  Remember, Lucifer wanted to be like the Most High.  Isaiah 14:14 says “I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.”  He used the serpent to deceive Eve.  Adam listened to his wife and transgressed because he was responsible for guarding the Garden.

Satan now had the unconditional authority over the earth that God gave to Adam.  Satan then led one-third of the heavenly host of angels into a rebellion against God.  He wanted to be like the Most High, which of course he lost and was cast out into the second heavens and the earth.  God prepared Hell and the Lake of Fire for these rebellious spirits at the appointed time of judgment.

Revelation 20:10 says “And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”

Ezekiel 28:13 says “You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: carnelian, chrysolite, and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.”

When Adam gave his authority and dominion over the earth to Satan, all mankind was headed for the same fate as Satan because ALL rebellion will enter the Lake of Fire at the last judgment.  Satan was gleeful that he had tricked mankind into going to destruction along with him.  But God wasn’t about to let this be the end of His children.  Jesus was slain from the foundation the world for us.  That is our created value to God.

Genesis 3:15 says “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her Offspring.  He will bruise and tread your head underfoot and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel.” (AMP)

We must all get the revelation of just how much God loves us.  We cannot wrap our minds around the love of God because HE IS LOVE.  Think about this: when we fall in love with a person and we KNOW they love us.  We feel so warm inside and secure.  We are happy to know that this person loves us more than anyone else.  Right?  Now multiply that feeling by a million and you can get an inkling of the depth of God’s love for YOU.  There is NOTHING that can compare to the love of God.

We are never alone when we have God.  We cannot ever say “nobody loves me.”  That is a lie because God loves you and Jesus already paid the price for every sin you’ll ever commit!  Understanding and embracing our created value will firmly establish your faith and empower you to take dominion over your realm of influence.  Romans 5:8 says But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Psalm 136:26 says “Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.”

John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”   Understanding both your authority and your created value are key to successfully rule your realm of influence.  If you aren’t sure about it, begin to study it out and seek God about it for yourself.

      If this is the second divorce that you’ve been through with him, then you have been his mistress for a while now. He’s obviously not capable of being faithful to his vows. Why do you think he would be faithful to you? You are right, it probably won’t last. If you want God in your life then you need to repent of adultery and start following Jesus. Leave the boyfriend behind. He’s married. If you can’t let the boyfriend go, then there is nothing that prayer will help you with. God will not bless adultery. You’ll just have to take your chances with him, but the greater peril is both of your eternities. The Bible is clear: adulterers do not enter the Kingdom of God. You are at a crossroads: choose life or death. I encourage you to choose life. I will definitely pray for both of you to come into the Kingdom.

        Please pray for me for I have badly backsliden. I was raised in the Catholic Church and have known about the forgiveness of Christ all my life. I believe I truly accepted Jesus into my life when I was 25 and followed him closely for about 10years. After that I have continuously been struggling with immoral sinful habits, along with deceit, pride and arrogance. I have been disciplined by the Lord numerous times and he has restored me through my confession and short periods of repentance, only to return to my sinful ways. I have suffered the consequences of sin through a divorce, health issues and recent loss of job. I am almost 60 years old and once again see the errors of my ways, or sinful lifestyle. I am seeking God’s forgiveness again and praying that my heart has not been hardened beyond the point of true repentance and salvation. Thank you Micki for your wonderful blog. It has encouraged me to hopefully and prayerfully truly repent and follow Jesus the balance of my life. Thank you. Richard.

        Hi Richard! Thank you for your prayer request and I will certainly bring you to the Father in intercession. Please don’t think you are past the point of no return. The very fact that you are reaching out shows your heart is longing for deeper fellowship with Him. To repent is to make the decision to turn and go in the opposite direction of where you are now. You turn and begin to walk back to God. He will run to meet you I promise He will. He ran to meet me when I finally repented of alcoholism. Not only that, but He healed my damaged liver. He literally followed me to the edge of Hell as I was dying of alcoholism. He delivered me, forgave me and healed me. I am positive He loves you enough to do the same for you. If you have decided to turn away from your old lifestyle and follow Jesus, then pray this prayer and mean it in your heart:

        “Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus Christ. I confess that I have fallen away from You. I confess that I have sinned against You by backsliding away from You, Your ways and Your Word. Like the prodigal son, Lord, I humbly ask for Your forgiveness for the evil I have done. I repent and turn away from this evil life that I have lived. I miss You so much!

        I now recommit my life to You, Lord Jesus. I want to come home. I want You to be the Lord of my life now and forever more. Please forgive me for wandering and walking away from You. I’m so sorry that I have hurt You. I ask that my sins be washed away by Your Precious Blood. I thank You for the price You paid so that I can be cleansed from all my sins!

        Lord, fill me once again with Your Holy Spirit that I might live unto righteousness with You. Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me O Lord. I choose this day, life. As for me and my house, I choose to serve the Lord!

        Thank You, Father, for restoring me into fellowship with You. Thank You for the Blood of Jesus that has cleansed me. Thank You that, like Peter, I am restored to fellowship with You and I ask Lord, that we would continue our walk again. Flow through me to advance the Kingdom every day of my life. I ask all these things in the Name of Jesus. Amen and Amen!”

        Now, you are restored! You are in right standing with God because you have turned away and are following Him now. I would encourage you to spend at least 15 minutes talking to God every day. Just like you and I are talking. Tell Him about your life, tell him your struggles and issues etc. Thank Him and praise Him during this time. Get your Bible out and begin reading. Start reading the Psalms and the Gospels starting with Matthew. Follow Jesus around in the Gospels and you will be amazed at how close you find yourself to Him in no time. It’s not a religion, it’s a relationship with God through the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross. When you turn and sell out to Jesus 100% all in, Richard, life becomes an adventure beyond your wildest imagination. LIfe is full of purpose and peace and love.

        If you want more ministry, please send in a prayer request from the prayer request section of the blog and I will get it in my personal email. We can talk further if you need help! I’m praying for you!

        Love in Christ

That is the next step for you. Pray this prayer and begin today to establish an intimate relationship with Jesus. You won’t regret it!

      Prayer of Restoration (The Back-slider’s Prayer)
      When we meet Jesus and begin to follow Him, we are on a narrow road. This road can be very hard sometimes. Sometimes we can lured away from the narrow road by the cares of life, and like the prodigal son, we wake up one day and want to come home. Know this: Abba Father is always looking for you. When He sees your heart turn, He will run to meet you. Yes…He loves YOU that much. So don’t hesitate to come back by praying this prayer.
      “Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus Christ. I confess that I have fallen away from You. I confess that I have sinned against You by backsliding away from You, Your ways and Your Word.

    Thank you very much for the prayers for our use. I will use one of them for my use personally.
    I am single and 60 of age. I used to be gay for many years. I stopped the evil lifestyle 2 years ago after reading 1st Corinthians 6:9. Unfortunately, I have been haunted by gay thoughts for 2 years now. I, even, avoided watching porns for 2 years! It was not easy. Fortunately, reading three chapters of the Gospels everyday gives me a big strength to stay from that evil lifestyle. Hope this helps

      Hi Dear One,
      I noticed your email hasn’t been responded to just yet. It sounds like you have a heart to please the Lord because if not, these areas of shortfall wouldn’t bother you. I encourage you to confess your sins to JESUS!! Ask Him to remove all of the guilt and shame, and to help you turn completely away from the power of sin. Then, talk to your Pastor and his wife about the areas of sin in your life, it’s what they are there for…to help you overcome in your personal walk with Christ and give you Godly counsel( it should always line up with God’s Word) and with the help of JESUS, you can overcome anything!! Romans 8:1, don’t beat yourself up, and look for people around you who live God’s Word, Godly women to encourage you and Lastly…Honor your Mom. As long as she’s not advising you to sin, you are to obey her..you will be blessed by God for your obedience, even when it’s uncomfortable to you. Love you with the love of JESUS!! Live to please Christ. Grace and peace be with your spirit in JESUS mighty name AMEN!!!

      Hello Koketso
      I read your comment and wanted to share a few thoughts with you. Repentance Is simply turning from sin and Not loving It any longer. You see without the power of Christ In your life you will continually fall back Into those things you hate. You could repent your whole life and confess all your sins every time you fall and still be just as lost when you stand before God. You see Its not about confessing every thing you have ever done, Its about Believing that Jesus did every thing for you already and If you will believe In the work that he did for you at that point you are forgiven. You are Justified before God, a new person. It doesn’t make scene I know but If you believe In Christ for your salvation you will receive the holy spirit into your life and He will Empower you `to live holy. Salvation Is a daily process for the rest of your life. Now through the power of the Holy Spirit you have the power to choose right over wrong. You have the power to choose no respect your mother when Its not easy. You have the power to live for God. But you will never get It through Confession Only through Believing In the Finished work of Jesus.
      Just believe and you will be saved.

    Self deliverance?

    Is self deliverance possible? I suffer from anger and rage. I went through a lot of hardship, betrayal, traumatic experiences as an immigrant in a new country. My broken marriage lead me to drinking in my loneliness to relax from sorrow and persecution from ex in-laws.

    I have repented from my sins and self pity and have joined a christian fellowship. They don’t know much about these issues.

    I want to become whole and free. I fought hard to save my daughter and won my rights as a father but dont want my anger issues to become a problem in parenting.

      Hi Mark ~ Thank you for commenting on the page today! All of my deliverances were done with just me and Jesus in our quiet time. I was delivered from alcoholism, fear and rage, so I know that self-deliverance is possible, but it depends on how close you are to Jesus. Have you met Jesus Christ personally or are you just moving in His direction? Once you have a personal encounter with Him, then you can put everything under His blood. I wrote a small prayer book called The God Book that I have made available free here on the blog as an eBook or I can send you a copy of the book to keep with your Bible. It has prayers that you can pray (in faith) for salvation, repentance for specific things, forgiveness of others who have wronged you, applying the blood of Jesus and more. I have used this book to help people get free to love God and love life and others. I think your key issue is forgiveness of the wrongs and establishing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He will change your world if you give Him a chance. I can help you walk through this if you want. Send me any questions to stonesoffireministries@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to help you. Blessings Mark!

    Hi there Ms. Todd,

    Everyone who knew me would seriously think this guy has huge talent.

    But I messed up big bit time. I’m here sitting on the couch, living at home, partially insane, addicted, no hope, etc.

    Can you imagine this situation? It’s very huge.

      Hi Zubin ~ There is a Person who can help you out of your situation. His name is Jesus Christ. He loves you very much and wants to give you a life full of good things. We can’t live in the past because that is where regret is. And regret will stifle our future hopes. Say goodbye to the past because you cannot change anything about it. It’s today that matters. Jesus said “take no thought for tomorrow because tomorrow has it’s own troubles.” Today you are in a situation where you need Jesus to come into your life. There’s a line in a song that says “When You walk into the room, everything changes.” And this is so true! It is impossible to be in the presence of Jesus and remain the same. Right where you are, sitting on the couch and living at home in the pit of addiction, ask Jesus to come into your heart. What have you got to lose? He will come.

      Pray this prayer out loud to the Lord: Father God, I come to You in the name of Jesus Christ and I confess that I am a sinner who is lost without Jesus in my heart. Today I choose to repent of my sins and turn away from my current life and turn to You for a new life. Jesus, I ask You to forgive me and come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. I give my life to You to use as You will. Fill me with Your Spirit and make me a new creature in You. I ask that You restore my right mind and deliver me from all addictions. I know that You have good plans for my life and I accept them now and I thank You for coming into my heart! Amen and Amen!

      Now Zubin, instead of saying “I’m becoming insane each day,” say “I’m alive in Christ and I have a sound mind!” “I am FREE in Jesus’ Name!”

      Your words are powerful and have the ability to bring to pass the things you say. You aren’t insane so don’t “own” it. So what now? I have another page on this blog called “Meet Jesus Here…” This page has things you can do to develop your friendship with Jesus every day. I encourage you to go to this page and take note of these things. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for prayer if you are struggling with anything. Sometimes its a battle to get completely free of things. God bless you and I am praying for you!

    • Micki Todd says:

      Hi Khaled ~ To answer this, you have to go to the Bible. The Bible is God’s Word for people to live by. It’s the acceptable standard of behavior in His sight. So what does the Bible say about the words that come out of our mouth?

      * Ephesians 4:29 says “Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.”
      * Matthew 15:18 says “But what comes out of the mouth comes from the heart, and this defiles a man.”
      * Proverbs 18:21 says “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
      * Colossians 4:6 says “Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.”
      * Proverbs 21:23 says “Those who guard their mouths and tongues keep themselves from calamity.”
      * James 3:6 says “The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.”
      * Philippians 4:8 says Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.”
      * Psalm 51:10 says “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

      Whatever comes out of your mouth whether it is words of blessings or curse words, it stems from your heart. As a Christian, or a follower of Jesus, our speech must be full of the love of God. Curse words are used when people are angry most of the time or frustrated. Non-believers of Jesus Christ curse because that is the language of the world. In the Kingdom of God, our speech is loving and seasoned with salt that brings life to people. Is saying curse words a sin? Yes, because they don’t line up with God’s Word. We are not to conform to the world’s ways and cursing is part of the world’s ways. Every once in a while, if I’m really frustrated or angry, I may let it slip out and I have to repent and ask forgiveness because I feel a rift in my relationship with the Lord. Once you have an intimate relationship with Jesus, anything that doesn’t agree with His Word, will cause a rift. I can’t stand being in that position so I rush to the throne of grace and repent. I had a bad problem with profanity when I came to Jesus and it took years to get to the place I am now where I seldom slip in this area, but when I do, I always am quick to repent. I hope this helps.

      Yes Maria, there is nothing that the blood and mercy of God won’t forgive except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. His mercy is awesome!

    I would like to thank the lord Jesus for this web site and I would like you to know it is exactly what i needed at this moment. I would like you to pray that i continue to live a life of repentance. I pray that anyone who has the same problem with sin who is a believer would find this web site or repent as well.

      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!

  40. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

      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!

    “Remember, he [Satan] 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!” -Yes!
    This is an excellent post. Thank you for sharing. I believe many will be blessed by this.

    Love,

        Hi Masha ~ As long as you have breath in you lungs and the Age of Grace is in effect, which it is, you can repent and turn to the Lord. Deception will tell you He doesn’t want you. It’s a lie. The fact that you have taken the time to seek someone’s help shows that you want Him. Here is a prayer of repentance I encourage you to speak out loud to God the Father and mean it in your heart.

        Father, I come to Your throne of grace in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, my Savior. I thank You for sending Jesus to die for me and to purchase my salvation. I know it is already paid for and I am here now to redeem it. I want to follow You with my whole heart. Such as I am, I now give to You. I don’t care how I feel, whether my heart is soft or hard. I choose YOU today. I choose to follow Jesus and take up my cross. I ask You to forgive all my sin and cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus. Make the pages of my book red and wash away the sin forever. I place everything on the altar Jesus and ask You to create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. I invite you to live in my heart forever. I ask for a fresh infilling of the Holy Spirit to empower me to live for You daily. I thank You for loving me and saving me! I love You because You first loved me. In all these things I ask in Jesus’ name. Amen and AMen!

        After your pray this prayer, don’t look at how your feel. It’s a journey of faith. Just know that Jesus will come into your heart when you ask Him to. Your sins will be gone and a whole new life awaits you. God bless you Marsha…
