"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus
is Lord and believe in your heart that God
raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
(Romans 10:9 NLT)
Father God, on bended knee I ask for
forgiveness for all unjustly and unkind
words I have spoken against family,
friends, even strangers. May your loving
kindness accept my petition of remorse,
my tears of shame, my memory of guilt.
Release me from the hurts I inflicted,
my jaundiced eye, a misspoken word,
the innuendoes, erratic gossip and
uncontrolled anger inflicted in a moment
of careless abandon, of mischievous nature.
Now I sense Your release and forgiveness
placed on my heart, an energy renewed
and I thank you for a new day, Father God.
