He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. "Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom." - Prov. 28:13; Luke 23:42
Our Loving Lord Jesus,Two thousand years ago, when You sojourned on this earth as a human being, they laid on You grievous but false accusations. You suffered as a convict as I am now suffering and were crucified on the Cross. You know therefore the heart and the feelings of a convicted felon; and I raise my prayer unto You this day with hope for help.Father, the Bible says that, 'he that covers his sins shall not prosper; but whoever confesses and forsakes them shall have mercy'. I only blame myself for my miserable position and suffering as a prisoner in this jail. I do admit my sins and shortcomings. I do not accuse anyone and acknowledge that I am only being punishment for my evil deeds. O lord, forgive my sins. It is written that, "if we confess our sins, You are faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness". In Your great mercy forgive me my sins, my faults, my shortcomings and my trespasses. Father, my loneliness aggravates my sufferings. Let Your presence comfort me in these troubled times Lord.Lord God, I also pray for those who were exposed. to suffering due to my misdeeds, please comfort them and grant them rich blessings to compensate for all the loss and pain I have inflicted upon them. Fill their minds with Your heavenly peace. Grant me the opportunities and the boldness to approach all those whom I have wronged and to seek their forgiveness, when I am finally released from this prison cell. I earnestly pray for every member of my family from whom I am separated. I do realize that they are exposed to suffering for no fault of theirs but only due to my misbehavior. Have compassion on them and comfort them. Finally Lord, I earnestly seek Your grace to lead a holy life hereafter and bring glory to Your name, in Jesus' name I ask.Amen.
