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