40 Prayers for my Husband: His Repentance

"He who conceals his sins
does not prosper,
but whoever confesses and renounces them
finds mercy."
~Proverbs 28:13~

Today we pray for our husbands to have a heart for repentance and an open desire to have any sins revealed to him. Along the same lines of him receiving forgiveness through his repentance, we'll pray that he will also forgive others in the way he has been forgiven.

Prayer #33. His Repentance

Father, thank You for Your great mercy. You have shown it to all generations. You are a forgiving God, You are gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in love. (Neh.9:17) You have promised that when Your people turn from their sin and seek Your face You will hear them and will be faithful and just to forgive them their sins.(2Chr.7:14, 1John1:9)
Father, I pray You will give my husband a heart for repentance. Give him the courage to admit any wrong he has done. Convict him early and convict him often. Give him an open and teachable heart with an ongoing, ever strengthening desire to what is good and pleasing in Your eyes and eyes of man. Where conviction has taken place, further move him to humble repentance, seeing his sin as You do and fully renouncing its hold on his life. Father, in his humble repentance give him Your peace, knowing he is fully forgiven and can walk unashamedly in front of You. That You have removed his sin as far as the east is from the west. That You are the one Who blots out his transgressions and will remember them no more. (Is.43:25) 
Father, I praise You again for Your great mercy. As You have forgiven my husband of any confessed sin, give him a heart to forgive others as You have forgiven him. Help him see any bitterness or unforgiveness in his heart as sin. Teach him gently that he must forgive in order to be forgiven; that You forgive with the same measure he forgives. (Matt6:14-15) Strengthen him, be his rock when its hard to see past the pain, the unfairness, or the human tendency to seek revenge. Soften his heart toward anyone who treats him poorly, bearing with everyone in love, forgiving as You forgive. (Col.3:13) In Jesus' name. Amen.

"if you do not forgive men their sins,
your Father will not forgive your sins."
~Matthew 6:15~
