Forgiveness Prayer

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Proverbs 27:17

Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

When we struggle to forgive someone who offended us, or hurt us, we must go to the place where we lost our blessing. The moment that put up walls and created silence, the moment where we drew the line, and refused to speak about it. If you do not remember it, or cannot recall the moment, ask the Holy Spirit, the reminder, to help you. He brings all things to our remembrance. John 14:26

We are the RIGHTEOUSNESS of GOD no good thing, is withheld from us

A  little bit of a back story.  Normally it is easy for me to forgive, and even over look other people’s mistakes, until those mistakes have either caused damage in my life, or my children’s life. Then it’s WAR! I don’t fight the people, because they are simply a pawn in the enemies plan, I take it to GOD. I recognize the hand of the enemy, and ask GOD to look into my situation. Oftentimes he does, and things turn around. Here’s a template of the prayer of forgiveness. 


Lord, these heavy burdens of mine, are too heavy to carry, these problems, and struggles, are too heavy to bear.  You know them by name, and situations at hand. Your burden is light, and your yoke is not heavy, greater is he that is within, then he who places burdens upon me. I can do all things, mighty things, marvelous things through Christ who gives me the strength.

Forgive me father

I was caught unaware, and ignorance got the best of me. I should have been more careful, but I let the enemy sway me, now I’m crying out in desperation, please save me. I fell into his trap, and he caught me with his net, but you rescue those who are caught in despair, and deliver them from all their troubles. Forgive me, and my offenses, blot out my transgressions, have mercy on me. I repent of my ways, and seek to honor you, and your name. I trust that you will see me to my rescue, provide for me, shield me, and protect me from my enemies.

I forgive myself, and those who have wronged me in any shape or form. I let them go, and the situation at hand.

I forgive ________ you can say their name here) for hurting me, or allowing myself to hurt me in any way, shape or form. ( you can name the situation here. All the debt that I am carrying, I apply the blood of Jesus to the situation at hand. The debt is paid, and I forgive their offenses/trespasses against me. Holy Spirit wash me clean. No evil shall befall me no disaster come near my dwelling. Command your angels to guard me in all my ways. My foot will not dash against a stone, you will rescue me. Cover me and keep me under the shadow of your wings. Let me receive the joy of your salvation, and walk into freedom. Release these burdens of mine, these feelings of un-forgiveness in my heart. By your stripes I am healed, from the top of my head, to the soles of my feet. I am the RIGHTEOUSNESS of GOD, there is no shame in me. I surrender my all to you, amen! Matthew 6:14; 1 John 1:7; Psalm 51:2; Psalm 91:10-13
