Prayers for Forgiveness


Short Prayer:

 

Merciful God, I ask for Your forgiveness for my sins and shortcomings. Help me to forgive others, just as You have forgiven me, and to let go of any bitterness or resentment. In Your holy name, I pray. Amen.

 

Long Prayer:

 

Heavenly Father, I come before You today, acknowledging my need for Your forgiveness. I confess my sins and shortcomings and ask for Your mercy and grace. Help me to turn away from my mistakes and to embrace Your love and redemption.


Lord, I also pray for the ability to forgive others, just as You have forgiven me. Grant me a heart free from bitterness and resentment, and the strength to let go of past hurts. Teach me to extend grace and compassion to those who have wronged me, reflecting Your forgiveness in my interactions with others.


As I walk in the path of forgiveness, help me to remember the great gift of Your mercy and the freedom it brings. May I experience the healing and restoration that come from forgiveness, both given and received.


In Your holy and precious name, I ask for forgiveness and the ability to forgive. Amen.
