Oh Lord, have mercy on me! I am a sinner and in need of your mercy and atonement to save me! My human tendency is to follow what my flesh wants instead of doing what I know in my spirit is righteous. I have no way to pay that debt myself! Please forgive me in your love and mercy and grace!
I pray in submission and repentance – the way You taught us to pray: Our Father who is in heaven. Holy is your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth and in me as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread (dependent on You for all we need that is good). Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. We cannot pay our debt of sin. You lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, power and glory are Yours forever!
You have promised that if we confess our sins that You are faithful to forgive us from all unrighteousness. It is the holy and spotless (totally righteous) blood of Jesus that cleanses us from all unrighteousness. I offer overjoyed thankfulness to Father, Son Yeshua Jesus, and Holy Spirit for your plan and work of mercy and love that I might be forgiven and saved…..debt paid in full. How could I not also be a person of mercy and forgiveness towards others when I have received so much!
Matthew 5:7, “Blessed – happy, to be envied, and spiritually prosperous (that is with life-joy and satisfaction is God’s favor and salvation, regardless of outward conditions) are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy!” Amplified version.
