7 Bible Prayers of Forgiveness and Repentance from When Christians Hurt Each Other

Christians sometimes struggle with forgiveness and repentance. When we get hurt, we want immediate justice and vengeance. And when we hurt other people’s feelings, we find it hard to swallow our pride, reflect upon our actions, accept our faults, repent from our sins and make amends where necessary.

Instead of fighting for peace, we pursue deceit and end up being defeated. Instead of letting go and letting God fight the battle, we allow the flesh to rule and lead us into taking matters into our own hands and taking vengeance whenever we can.

This fight against flesh is the first fight we must conquer in order to become Christ-like. Christ who was led to the slaughter yet he did not open his mouth to condemn anybody though he had the power to stop his tormentors not once did he lift a finger neither did he speak a word to curse instead he prayed for them saying, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do” (Isaiah 53:7, Luke 23:34).

You may not have done it on purpose, but for some reasons beyond your imagination, you may have found out that you hurt other people’s feelings and you will like to reconcile this before God. Perhaps the Holy Spirit has convicted you of hurting other people’s feelings and you wonder how to go about it. The following Bible Prayer will help you to pray for God’s forgiveness and cause you to repent from hurting others henceforth.

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.
