Prayer of Forgiveness for Telling Lies and Being Deceitful
Do not steal. Do not lie. Do not deceive one another. (Leviticus 19:11). Thats what the Bible says yet we do it all the time. We tell lies to loved one’s and we deceive with our words. You will lose count of the amount of times each person lies to someone or deceived them on a daily basis if we were to take a census. Still, God detest lies (Proverbs 6:16-19). It is a plague many people suffer and regardless of what you call it – white lie or a dark lie, a lie is still a lie before God. It steals your joy and peace, wearies the soul, hurts those you love and slowly destroys your health. The moment lies and deception 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.
Let’s Get Started, But…
Before we make declarations, it is key to remember the rules that govern it. If we must make effective pronouncements that yield results, we must adhere to the rules of declarations and say the accompanying prayers. Can you join me in saying the Lord’s Prayer together after making the following declarations? It will seal up your affirmations and carry our hearts desire before God ALMIGHTY. I am so glad we’re on this journey together and I hope these faith-filled declarations will fill you with so much faith, and usher you into forgiveness in Christ with full restoration to your identity.
Prayer of Forgiveness for Telling Lies and Being Deceitful
Father God who forgives the sins of mankind. I come before your throne of mercy with a heavy heart and with humility I seek your forgiveness. Dear God, Forgive me for ever telling lies and being deceitful to people and most importantly to those I love.

KelvinAugust 14, 2017 at 1:55 pm
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.
Daily Bible DeclarationsAugust 14, 2017 at 2:58 pm
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.

I understand you completely. I lied to my employer and now I’m resigning from my job because of it. I have no other job to fall back on. I feel so far apart from God right now. I want to feel his comfort on my so I can begin to heal my life and begin again. I want him to guide me in what to do and follow his plan and not my own.
AmandaAugust 28, 2020 at 4:58 pm
God has seen you and wants to help you. Ask him for help; I have and that’s exactly what he wants from you. He wants to hear you ask for his help. Yes he hates liar’s but he LOVES it when you ask him to help YOU!! What are you waiting for!?

CathyMarch 5, 2018 at 7:41 pm
I too am In the same situation I lie to always protect myself and I have now made a mess out of my life from all of the lying, I feel so disconnected to God and I so ashamed I pray that God will search my heart and forgive me and that my husband and love one’s will one day forgive and trust me again. I know that once trust is broken it is hard to regain but I am hoping that it can be restored.
DeeMarch 24, 2018 at 8:10 pm
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.
PatMarch 29, 2018 at 11:05 pm
Dee I the same .lost alone and broke.please forgive me Jesus and please forgive Dee too.
JadeApril 4, 2018 at 10:12 am
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.
HildaAugust 28, 2018 at 2:03 pm
I know how you feel Jade, I know how feel and I know what you going through. I feel like I’m already in hell burning for my sins!
ToddJuly 19, 2018 at 4:00 am
I ask that God forgive me for the lies that I have told. I am so ashamed of what I have done and not sure how God or my wife will ever forgive me I know that I am a simple man and want to live a good life with my wife and children. Please Lord I ask you now to forgive me and keep at bay the evil of the devil.
HildaAugust 28, 2018 at 1:48 pm
I lied during a fast and I did feel something in me saying I shouldn’t do it but I did it anyway to save myself, I feel so much guilt and shame. cant seem to even connect in prayer no more, I broke a vow I had made to God that it would never happen again. It feels as though he’s left me as a result don’t even know if I should just break the fast and leave everything. I thought I was never going to do it again but I always suppress that small voice that warns me never to do it everytime…after all that ill feel so much conviction and guilt and will even be scared to pray and think God will never even listen because he knows it was deliberate. at times I feel I should just leave everything and die. I hate disappointing God like this, but I always do. I hate myself. if God wont forgive this time, I totally understand, its too much!
JadeOctober 3, 2018 at 12:50 pm
God loves us and yes we will feel very bad when we sin .but that is good because God gives us these feeling to repent and to get up and try again and if we fall again we repent but each time we should have a determination to hate the sin and fight to please God to obey his commandments. . It not easy but every time we do the right thing even though it hurts .Next time it will be easier to not fall into temptation.

I join my faith with yours and In Jesus name we pray for heart desire for forgiveness to be granted you. Amen.
JadeOctober 23, 2018 at 5:36 pm
I read your text and I am so proud of you for taking a stand and hating the the sin in your life. I also read were you wrote the evil spirit s are making you do it The devil can not make us do any thing unless we give him permission . I have been were you are at, We have to stand up to the devil and tell him no I am a child of god I hate the path that I am going so there for I will not give into temptation and ask god to give us strength and wisdom to turn away from the sin . God is so faithfully faith full that he will hear us and he’ll help us turn away. However if you are dealing with manifestations of evil entity I suggest fasting and praying and repenting to clean your soul and moving toxic people and things out of your way that are hindering your deliverance. Call me if you like. 7132619998. Evil is out there and the devil just needs a little to come into your life and destroy you forever. Hate the things that god hates and love the things that please and honor him. So every time the sin tempts you , remember you make god sad if you give in and you make the devil happy . keep fighting, fast, pray and carry a scripture with you were you are being tempted to sin . Last you have to be very determined and angry towards the sin and hate it enough to turn from it no matter what it takes.

I have lied to a very good man that had a very good heart
I have lied to him and I feel so heartbroken
He discovered that I lied and he is in pain and regrets
I have decided to stop lying.
I have decided to change
I don’t want to lie anymore
Help me Lord
Teach me the truth at all times
JadeMarch 11, 2020 at 12:11 am
Jennifer God sees your heart and I believe if we tell the truth and make it right God will make things work out for our good. Sometimes we lie to get attention or we don’t want to hurt the other person or we feel shameful of our actions or have fear that they won’t understand. We are human and will make mistakes. That’s why we need to confess our sins ask for forgiveness suffer the consequences if any and don’t repeat that mistake again.
Ayoola BandeleJune 16, 2020 at 9:27 am
My heart goes out to you. Please know that God has forgiven you as you have asked for the forgiveness of your sin and try to forgive yourself too. Also make amends with the person you have hurt.
If you’d like a safe space to talk, a non judgemental ear to listen to you and help with working through to overcome this habit, please feel free to contact me directly. Try to read through the post on Repentance on the blog also, it’ll set help you along the way.
Prayer: May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace as you trust in him. Amen.
Casandra GatewoodMay 4, 2020 at 12:53 am
thank you for these prayers. I have prayed them with a sincere heart. I thank God for the privilege to come to him in prayer and repent of my sin. I am so grateful.
JadeMay 14, 2020 at 2:50 pm
I read your comments . My advice to you is that you make it right with the girl you cheated on . Saying I am sorry and doing it again will not help. You have to have a change of heart . If you really love this girl ask her how you can make it up to her follow by letting her have access to your phone . Tell her to help you and both of you guys get together and pray to God for strength with temptation’s . Tell her that you love her and you never ment to hurt her and you will ask God to help you become a God fearing man . Owning up to your sins and trying not do them again says alot about the integrity of the person . Have hope and fear God . The devil studies you 24 hours a day. You will have more temptation’s when you start to do right . But remember God will not let the devil temp you more than you can’t handle. You can do it trust me . Soon you will hate sin and help other’s that were once like you .I Corinthians 10 : 13 and Galathians 5: 19-21.Romans 12 : 9

I have lied for a very long time. Since when i was a child i lied too much to cover up the lies of my grand father. I love them both of y grand mother and him thats why i dont tell the truth to her. And very guilty about that. i dis that because i dont want them to argue. And now i lied again to my partner, and it hurts her too much. i did that not only once but so many times.

I dont know what to do anymore, i feel so ashamed to anybody especially to her parents and to my parenta too. Pls. give me an advice. I want to change my life for good. and hoping that she will forgive me for what ive done to her.

If I told a lie and ask God to forgive me do I need to go to the person I lied to in order for God to totally forgive me?
EngidaFebruary 25, 2023 at 7:25 am
I have an episode of factitious disorder I lied to every one that I was sick I stoped eating food and took only water or juice i lost a lot of weight but I repent of my sin I ask for forgives from my loved ones that I was lying to them but not all the detailed story’s
They all say it’s all past that they forgive me and no need to tell the detailed story’s what is left for me now
JD GOODNOMarch 28, 2023 at 4:43 pm
Engida, (everyone) let us accept/receive the gift of forgiveness our Father freely gives.
No God does not love our sin but when we sincerely repent He forgives & the real work begins!! So let us take up our cross – how you ask? We can only do this with God’s help, so ask Him for it. He’s ready, willing & able, He’s just waiting on us to ask for it. As it is written in Proverbs 3:5-8 ISV 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not depend on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make your paths straight. 7 Do not be wise in your own opinion. Fear the LORD and turn away from evil. 8 This will bring healing to your body, and refreshment to your bones.
Once we repent we need to FORGIVE OURSELVES & strive to live the life God predestined for us! God does not want us to torture ourselves or to beat ourselves up day/night –> that is the lie/trick the enemy who wants us to focus on our pasts sin(s) to keep you down… As it is written in Jeremiah 29:11-14 ISV 11 For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for well-being, and not for calamity, in order to give you a future and a hope. 12 When you call out to me and come and pray to me, I’ll hear you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart. 14 I’ll be found by you,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I’ll restore your security and gather you from all the nations and all the places to which I’ve driven you,’ declares the LORD. ‘I’ll bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.’
Declare today that “I DON’T BELIEVE THE LORD BROUGHT ME THIS FAR TO LEAVE ME.” For it is written, Psalms 37:5 NET Commit your future to the LORD! Trust in him, and he will act on your behalf and Psalms 37:23-28 KJV 23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. 25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. 27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore. 28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
When we fall down & we will (only Jesus is perfect) choose to respond by getting up, getting things right with God & getting back on the path He has just for you!!! Realize & learn from the experience as we excel higher & higher in Jesus. Remember He CHOSE to give up His life for our sins, in order to redeem us so that we too can live again and not die unto death, hell & the grave.
Hallelujah 🙌🏽 TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
