Prayer for Forgiveness

Lord,

please forgive me for (insert what you want to be forgiven for). I know that repentance is a two step process.  Not only do I need to ask for your forgiveness, but I need to turn from my sin.  I want to live a life that gives you glory Lord and not glory to myself.  Will you help me to keep away from my sinful behavior?  Thank you for showing me your grace over and over again.  I know I do not deserve it, but I am amazed at how you show mercy to me time and time again. 

In your name I pray,

Amen.

 
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
— Acts 3:19
I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
— Luke 15:7
