Pray for Repentance of our Sins
But God said to me, ‘You may not build a house for my name, for you are a man of war and have shed blood.’
1 Chronicles 28:3
God, please have mercy on me because of your goodness and compassion. Blot out my offenses. Wash away my guilt. Please cleanse me from my sins. I was born a sinner, even when I was conceived. Cleanse me so I will be pure. Wash me and make me whiter than snow. Turn your face away from my sins. Blot out my guilt. Create in me a clean heart.
God, give me a steadfast spirit and do not drive me from your presence. You are my saving God. You have rescued me from my sin. Lord, open my lips so I may praise you and your healing power. May I do so right now as I read and pray these words. You do not desire sacrifice. Burnt offerings you do not accept. God, my sacrifice to you is a broken spirit and a humble heart. I love you.
