Do you feel an urgent need to pray to God for forgiveness? Then come to Jesus, with a true acknowledgement of your faults and wrongdoings. Ask God our Father, who sees everything, to wash you clean. A true repentance must be genuine from your heart.
Do you feel broken? Through Jesus, God wants to heal you and make you whole again. It’s a promise and a gift no one but the Almighty Father can accomplish.
If you have a stony heart, ask God to replace it with a new heart of flesh. Ask Him for a renewal of Spirit, Mind and Soul.
Then God will reward you with overwhelming JOY!
Psalms 51:1-17 (NKJV)
Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, And cleanse me from my sin.
For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin [is] always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight – That You may be found just when You speak, [And] blameless when You judge. Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, And in the hidden [part] You will make me to know wisdom.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me hear joy and gladness, [That] the bones You have broken may rejoice. Hide Your face from my sins, And blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me [by Your] generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, And sinners shall be converted to You.
Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, The God of my salvation, [And] my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, And my mouth shall show forth Your praise. For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; You do not delight in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit, A broken and a contrite heart – These, O God, You will not despise.
