*Meaning of the Prayers of Forgiveness and Repentance you will prayer:

- Part 1 – Forgiving or Repenting - In obedience, we choose to forgive or repent. We repent because the Word tells us to pray for those who spitefully uses us but instead, we get bitter at the person (Luke 6:28; Matthew 5:43-48).

Scriptures:

Matthew 6:14-15 - 14“If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. 15 But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.

James 4:7 - So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

I John 1:9 - But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

 

- Part 2 - Canceling Satan’s Authority - In the name of Jesus and by the power of His blood, I cancel Satan’s power and authority over me in the issue of _________________.

Scriptures:

Ephesians 4:27 - for anger gives a foothold to the devil.

James 4:7 - So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

-Part 3 – Asking for Healing  - We ask to be healed of a broken heart or a broken body – free from shame, anger, guilt, rejection, bitterness, fear. We seek the renewing of our mind or the purging of our conscience.

Scriptures:

Psalms 103:3 - He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.

Romans 12:1-2 - 1And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Luke 4:18-19- 18 The  Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, 19 and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come.

Hebrew 9:14 - Just think how much more the blood of Christ will purify our consciences from sinful deeds so that we can worship the living God. For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.

- Part 4 - Listening or Talking With God - Ask the Holy Spirit to tell you His truth about the specific situation you are praying about. The Holy Spirit talks to us in a quiet voice, dreams, visions, impressions, or just takes the pain and leaves His peace.

 

Scripture:

John 14:26 - But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.
