Almighty God of Mercy,
I come before You in humble submission,
repenting for my sins.
Though I sincerely believe in Your forgiveness,
I seek to right my wrongs
through a form of restitution acceptable to You.
I feel that my repentance is simply not enough.
I pray to be able to pay back my great debt to You in some way.
Lord, I know that the debt is too great to repay in action alone,
and it is only through the blood of Jesus
that we are washed clean and made pure as gold.
I know forgiveness flows freely to those who sincerely repent.
Please accept my humble repentance
as I lay prostrate before Your throne of grace.
Lord, please receive my efforts with my heartfelt prayer of gratitude
for your everlasting love and kindness shown to us
through Your gift to the world,
Your only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ.
In Christ’s name. Amen.
Chestina Mitchell Archibald, Pastor serving in Nashville, TN
In him we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins,
in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
