When I Need Refreshed

This is a prayer that I created from verses in Psalm 51 when I feel I need to be refreshed by God’s Grace.

“Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment. … Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. …” (Amen)
Psalm 51:1‭-‬4‭, ‬9‭-‬12 ESV

In Marriage

The answer has always been part of life,
Why a good man wants a loving wife.
I’ll be here praying to have the wisdom I need,
To make our marriage able to truly succeed.

Now we must chose what is right for both,
Keeping the vows to God from our marriage oath.
You have to truly forgive and not just forget,
Not having God’s forgiveness you’ll always regret.

Make sure to follow God’s word every day,
As only God can show you the perfect way.
To have more from marriage than a friend & lover,
To finding true peace & joy being bonded to another!!

Prayer For Forgiveness

Here is a simple and easy to remember prayer based on Scripture for asking God for forgiveness of your sins.

“Dear God my Father, I confess I have sinned,¹ I have (list your sins) and I repent² for my sins, I ask God my Father through Jesus Christ³ for forgiveness of all my sins. Amen”

Below are a few of supporting verses from Scriptures. There are a plethora of additional verses I have not quoted found in the Bible supporting this prayer.

1) 1 John 1:9
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

2) Luke 13:3
“No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

3) John 14:6
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 3:16-17
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”

1 Timothy 2:5
“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,”

Acts 10:43
“To him all the prophets bear witness that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”
