Prayer for forgiveness

Reconnect With God And Say A Prayer For Forgiveness

How do I ask God for forgiveness? Before asking for forgiveness you must recognize why you need to be forgiven in the first place and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

How does God forgive us? God will forgive your wrongs so long as you say a daily prayer for forgiveness, your prayer will acknowledge your past and present wrong doings, and your desire to be more like Jesus with each passing day.

On the other side of the coin somebody you know may have wronged and angered you. This would understandably give you a feeling of anger and resentment. But if you want to live a life of peace and with the love of God then you must learn to forgive others for the wrongs they have done you.
