Prayer – Forgiveness For All

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus
is Lord and believe in your heart that God
raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
(Romans 10:9 NLT)

Father God, on bended knee I ask for
forgiveness for all unjustly and unkind
words I have spoken against family,
friends, even strangers. May your loving
kindness accept my petition of remorse,
my tears of shame, my memory of guilt.
Release me from the hurts I inflicted,
my jaundiced eye, a misspoken word,
the innuendoes, erratic gossip and
uncontrolled anger inflicted in a moment
of careless abandon, of mischievous nature.
Now I sense Your release and forgiveness
placed on my heart, an energy renewed
and I thank you for a new day, Father God.
