Prayer of Forgiveness for Telling Lies and Being Deceitful

Telling lies and being deceitful is a plague many people suffer. Call it a white lie or a dark lie, a lie is still a lie and it is one of the detestable sins before God(Proverbs 6:16-19).  It wearies the soul, hurts those we love and slowly eats at our flesh. Once lies and deceits have their claws sunk into the human mind, it is difficult for the tongue to regain its freedom.

Nobody who tells lies will enter heaven(Revelation 21:8, Revelation 21:27,1 Corinthians 6:9-11) unless you ask for forgiveness and you repent of telling lies. Sin hurts us and separates us from God. When we sin, we die a slow death physically and spiritually. You may be suffering from this plague of telling lies and being deceitful. You can ask God for the forgiveness of your sin, repent of this detestable sin, turn away from lying and deception and God will write your name in the book of life.

  3. I have hurt the love of my life. I’ve lied about things that I shouldn’t have had to lie about. I’ve been deceitful and I’ve hurt the one person that has stood by my side to the core. I feel as big as a pebble. I’ve fallen so far from God. I’ve allowed the words of man to penetrate and grow in my spirit. I feel so alone. I just want to rest at the feet of Jesus. I’m tired and I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried to pray and I’m all churched out. I’m all cried out honestly. I need a touch, a true touch from God.

    • Dear Kelvin,
      Do not despair. God has seen your heavy heart about this situation. All you have to do is go to God in prayers and in all honesty, confess your sins to him. Tell him in details all that you have done against him and against the love of your life. Ask God to forgive you and cleanse you of all your guilt. After you have done this, make up your mind not to do it again and seek forgiveness and peace with your loved one. I pray that you find favour with God and with your loved one in Jesus name. May you receive the peace of God that passes all understanding and may God forgive all your sins and make you whole again in Jesus name. Amen.

      P.S: We will continue to pray for you. Let us know the progress as you seek peace and forgiveness. God bless.

  8. I have done a terrible thing by lying, deceiving and taking advantage of someone close to me, financially. I tried to cover it up but it all came to the surface and I feel terrible. As I was in the midst of it, I knew it was wrong but couldn’t stop. Although I am paying back the debt, I’m filled with guilt and anxiety and I know the trust is broken. I’ve been lying most of my life about anything, small things, and I’ve made a complete mess of my life. Today it finally hit me that I’ve sunken to the lowest place in my life and I need help and I’m praying and asking for God’s forgiveness and to have mercy on me.

  9. I have lied so much . I feel so distance from God . I lied to get attention, I lied just about so many things . I am at a point in my life that my body aches with so much agony. I tried quitting only to repeat this devilish behavior again. Maybe I am not serious about the punishment that that’s coming to me if I don’t quit this bad behavior. God just like you heard the psalms David in his cry I need you to interfere and help me to stop being untruthful. I can’t do it on my own. I thank you in advance for getting me out of this death cycle.
