Forgive Me Lord

Lord, forgive me, for the things I have done
That make me ashamed in Your presence.
All the front that I polish so carefully
For men to see, do not deceive You.
I acknowledge with sorrow and repentance
That I have desired what I should not have
Toyed with what I knew was not for me.
I have been preoccupied with self-interest;
Invited unclean thoughts into my mind
And entertained them as honored guests.
My ears were often deaf to Your whisper;
My eyes have often been blind
To the signs of Your guidance.
Make me willing to be changed,
Restore me, Lord, as You forgive me.
Amen.

Bible Inspiration: Psalms 51:3-4
Have mercy on me O God… Thoroughly wash me from my guilt and of my sin cleanse me.

    Thank you for the website. I have cancer and read the prayer to St. Peregrine twice a day. I have begun to explore other prayers on the site.
