Forgiveness is at the heart of our relationship with God.
We are encouraged to come to God and ask Him for forgiveness. Although we may find this hard and burdensome, it is freeing. Through forgiveness we find freedom. Keep this in mind as you pray.
Use the following prayer prompt.
Today, prayer for forgiveness for not being a true friend:
Lord God, help me to not say bad things about _______________________. Help me be sensible, and keep quiet. When I’ve been told something in confidence, I’m sorry for my lack of ______________ . (Based on Proverbs 11:12-13 CEV)
But if we freely admit that we have sinned, we find God utterly reliable and straightforward—He forgives our sins and makes us thoroughly clean from all that is evil. 1 John 1:9 (PHILLIPS)
