Prayer of Repentance
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out all my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. Create in me a clean heart O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit that I may teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners may be converted unto thee.
Who can understand his errors? Cleanse thou me from secret faults and keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins that they might not have dominion over me. Then shall I walk uprightly and be innocent from the great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight O Lord my strength and my redeemer. Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me. Teach me to know thy ways O Lord I will walk in thy truth unite my heart to fear your name. In Jesus mighty name I pray. (Ps 51:1-2, 10-13, Ps. 19: 12-13, Ps. 36: 11, Ps. 86:11)
If you have prayed this prayer with genuine repentance, God has forgiven you and you need to move on and not park in your past. Forgive yourself and go in peace to continue to serve the Lord with all your heart.
