the words to this prayer

Prayer for Forgiveness

Dear Lord, I draw near to you.
I’m kneeling at the cross,
Aware of my need for forgiveness.
You took the sin of the world upon yourself.
Now I lay my life open before you.
Thank you that as I confess my sins, I am set free.
I will live forever in Your grace.

Dear Lord, I draw near to you,
I’m here in your presence,
I’m ready to run the race with your promises set before me.
Lord of all, you are my Saviour and you lead me into eternity,
Now I can rest in your hope and salvation.
Thank you that you cover me with your mercy.
I will remain in you, always.
