Prayer For Forgiveness Of Sins Against God And Others

You are not alone.

We all sinned against God and those around us.

In fact, if you claim you have not sinned, then you are misinformed.

The scripture says,

Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous,
    no one who does what is right and never sins.

Ecclesiastes 7:20

We were all conceived in sin.

But thank God, we are redeemed through Christ’s death and crucifixion.

There is no need to panic or be scared of your sins.

God is willing and able to ignore all your sins if we wholeheartedly confess them to him.

God can forgive you for hurting someone. He can forgive you for adultery or fornication.

And yes, he does not remember your iniquities in the future.

He lets go and gives you a second chance.

There is no set age to ask for repentance. As children, you can pray for forgiveness.

I have put together this prayer for forgiveness for hurting someone and sinning against God.

May God, in His infinite mercies, forgive you all your sins and return peace to your mind.
