Forgive us our sins,
    as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation,
    but rescue us from the evil one.
Matthew 6:12-13

bring new life where we are worn and tired,
new love where we have turned hard-hearted,
forgiveness, where we feel hurt and we have wounded,
and the joy and freedom of your Holy Spirit,
where we are the prisoners of ourselves.

Lord, I feel guilty and unclean.
My wrongdoings have made me ashamed to speak to you.
I am truly sorry for my sins.
Please forgive me and accept me as your child.
Renew me, even though I don’t deserve it.
Thank you for Jesus dying on the cross in my place.
I ask you to forgive me for his sake.  Amen.

Lord God, help me!
I need to let go of my hurt and pain.
It is eating me away inside.
I don’t know how to,
I’m not sure I want to.
But I know that it is holding me down,
It is stopping me from being free.
Please help me to let go, perhaps a little bit at a time.
I cannot do this on my own,
Lord God, please help me.  Amen
