WEEK OF PRAYER DAY FIVE



Prayer is your breath and is our main line of communication with God. When you open your mouth to pray God is breathing life into you. If you are not praying, you are not breathing. In the world today people are on a slippery slope that is leading them further and further from the Lord. Gods grace goes hand in hand with repentance.
(So repent and return to God, so that your sins may be wiped away, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord and that he may send you Jesus, the Christ, who has been appointed to you. - Acts 3:19-20).
 (If we freely admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just, and will forgive your sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned we make him a liar and his word is not in us. - 1 John 1:9-10). 
Repentance starts with the conviction of the Holy Spirit. You get this icky inner feeling that makes you feel bad about something you’ve said or done. This feeling is telling us we have messed up with the Lord. Go to the Lord immediately and confess that you have disobeyed what you know God expects of you. Ask him to forgive and cleanse you from this sin. Then repent and make up your mind to walk in love going forward. That is repentance. God will immediately put this sin under the blood of Jesus where it is erased forever and not remembered by God.

Father God
I confess to you that I have sinned. I acknowledge that this sin is against what your words say and therefore I repent of it right now in Jesus name! I come to your throne of grace and ask forgiveness for this sin. I place this sin on the alter and ask that the blood of Jesus be applied to this sin.
Help me father God to gain the victory in this area of my life in Jesus name! I ask that you give me the unction of the Holy Spirit before I say or do anything that would offend or grieve you. I ask for forgiveness and grace in the name of Jesus! Father God I ask that you would fix the messes I have created by sin. For only you can fix the unfixable! Only you can make all things new! I ask all these things in Jesus name, Amen.

A PRAYER FOR REPENTANCE 

1 Have mercy upon me, O God; according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou tightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. 
5 Behold, I was sharpen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
16 For thou desires not sacrifice; else would i give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine alter. - Psalm 51: 1-19 KJV
