Lord I'm Sorry For My Sins Forgive Me In Jesus Name, Amen.

If we every need an example of a fallen man we can look at David...If we every need and example of some one who got back up after sin and failure it's David....I believe David must'a fell on his knees, and prayed: “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your loving kindness; according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions... Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin” (Ps 51:1-2 ).I know some of us don’t know what repentance means...We offer a little prayer that goes: “Lord, I’m sorry for my sins... Forgive me in Jesus’ name. Amen....”But real true repentance begins with confession, which means to agree with God that what you did was wrong and needs to be made right... David prayed: “Against You…have I sinned, and done this evil in Your sight” (Ps 51:4 ). Genuine repentance means acknowledging that your sin is first and foremost an affront to God... It makes no excuses... It says, “This is my problem and my sin... I did'nt have to yield, but I chose to... I can’t blame it on anyone else.” David’s sin started with a “one-night stand” with Bathsheba which turned into a long-term problem... In Psalm 32 we read about the effects of sin on David.... In the aftermath he felt guilt, shame, and even physical symptoms because he would'nt come clean with God... But his story doesn’t end there... After being confronted by the prophet Nathan, he repented. After a year of hiding his sin, David came to his senses and sought God in brokenness of spirit...I hope the best for young Tiger Woods and family...
