Powerful Prayer: Forgive Me, Oh Lord

5 Versions of Prayer: Forgive Me, Oh Lord. Bible Verses Included.

“If we say we have no sin [refusing to admit that we are sinners], we delude ourselves and the truth is not in us.” The words you just read are from 1 John 1:8.

Isn’t it a relief to know that God never gets tired of us coming to Him and asking for forgiveness?!

We all repeatedly transgress, so it’s no surprise that we constantly need to talk to God, agree with Him that we have sinned, and request mercy.

As 1 John 1:9 says, “God will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness if we confess our sins.”

Below are 5 different versions of Prayer: Forgive Me, Oh Lord, for you to use as a guide in your conversation with God.
