A prayer for release from sin.

Release From Sin

My Lord, my Heavenly Father, I direct my prayer to You, knowing You are the one who can heal my life, calm my fears, and bring joy and light into my heart.

Thank You for Your Holy Word, the Bible, given to us for guidance, and for peace of heart and mind. Thank You for the opportunity to read Your Word daily.

Heavenly Father, we are a sinful people, held back from You by the sins and misbehaviors we’ve indulged in. There are many ways for a person to sin. It could be addiction to substances or unhealthy attachment to people who are toxic to our lives. Our sins could include tendencies to do or think evil, or to be stubborn, prideful, prejudiced or insensitive to the needs and emotions of others.

Lord, You and I know my own special types of sinfulness and what caused me to sin in these ways.

Lord, please heal what’s wrong with my life. Remove those evil strongholds that block me from living joyfully in the light of Your love and in service to Your people.

Lord, I want to abide in Your Word, saved by Your grace, so I can be Your true and joyfully sincere disciple.

Lord, I want to know the truth, Your precious truth, and want to be set free from the cycles of sinfulness that have afflicted my life. Please release me from slavery to sinfulness, and allow me the freedom, peace and joy that You alone can give.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen!

I wrote the prayer for release from sin this morning after reading John 8:31-36…

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

I’m reading through the Gospel of John, slowly. I’m going slow this time so I can think deeply about each section of the book. I’ve decided to (possibly!) write a prayer each day about something I’ve seen in my daily reading, and today chose to write about freedom from sin.

If you’re suffering from sinfulness, I hope you will read this prayer and find comfort in using it. Or maybe you know someone dealing with sin, and need to alter the prayer to be used for another person. We all sin – but all can be forgiven by our Lord Jesus Christ when we surrender our lives to Him and accept His kind offer of salvation.

The topic of sinfulness has come up several times recently in my home group and women’s Bible study group. This encouraged me to think about what sins I’m guilty of. Many sins no longer entice me, and some never did, however there are those hidden sins like angry thoughts about someone who upset me, or sudden attacks of pride, or eating too much – the sin of gluttony. We don’t have to sin massively to have a massive problems with sin.

Trust in Jesus – He can help. Jesus is the greatest healer who ever lived. And He loves us!

  1. I retaliated on somebody for not understanding or communicating with them the way I should. I done something that could have possibly hinder our relationship. I asked God to forgive me for my sin, but don’t know if I am asking him the right way. I am scared, nervous, and truly want to stop this cycle. Yes I said cycle because I done this previously to other people. I suffer from anxiety and it causes my mind to rethink of the past and other stuff. Can you please help find a prayer and scripture on what to do to release this sin?

    1. Father I uplift LeAirre to you this morning in prayer. Thank you Lord for putting into Le Airre heart to repent of the sin that he/she has committed against others and himself/herself . The spirit of retaliation , vengeance that has been done in the past they repent of towards others, and the sin of letting their emotions control them instead of controlling their emotions. I pray that your words is Psalms 19:14(NASB) says,Let the words of my mouth and (A)the meditation of my heart
      Be acceptable in Your sight,
      O Lord, (B)my rock and my (C)Redeemer. Father , I pray that you remove all angry, bitterness, furstration, anxiety, past hurt from Le Airre heart. I thank you in advance believing by Faith it is done.May Le Airre meditate on Psalms 19:14, Psalms 119:11 says,Your word I have (A)treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You. Let her/his words be of your words that comes out of their mouths. I pray that Le Airre meditate on yours words day and night. Lord, let past experiences of hurt, pain, destruction be place onto the sea. May Your words Lord be place in LeAirre hearts, because what comes out of the mouth ,comes from the heart. Matthew 12:34-37 (MSG),34-37 “You have minds like a snake pit! How do you suppose what you say is worth anything when you are so foul-minded? It’s your heart, not the dictionary, that gives meaning to your words. A good person produces good deeds and words season after season. An evil person is a blight on the orchard. Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you. There will be a time of Reckoning. Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.” Father, let it be revelation to Le Airre, that he/she needs to Let Go of the pass hurts, so that the heart can be filled with you, then his/her actions to things, situations, people, will line up with you, giving you glory, Hallelujah! . It is so , so it is, in Jesus mighty name, Amen.

  2. Thank you Lord, for using Linda as vessel to help me this morning in this time of repentance for being angry. Lord forgive me of being angry of those who wrongfully lied, who denied my son of his rights as to having extended time on tests, who denied him having quiet test room, who has not allowed him to finish his test, as student who has 504 plan. Your word says in Ephesians 4:26 (KJV), Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath. I let go and return that angry back where it came from, to uttermost place of the earth , Hallelujah! As , I confess this sin , I believe You God, has forgiven me of this sin. Thank you , Jesus! Proverbs 28:13(AMP) says, He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, But whoever confesses and [a]turns away from his sins will find compassion and mercy. I believe Lord, I shall prosper without any hindrances in the mighty name of Jesus. And so it is.
