God Forgives: All You Have to Do is Pray

Hello everyone, and welcome. Today, I want to share a message of hope and redemption written by my daughter, Sian, who is 13 years old. Despite her young age, she has a profound understanding of God’s love and forgiveness. I am proud to share her words with you, and I hope they touch your heart as they have touched mine.

God Forgives: All You Have to Do is Pray

Welcome, everyone. Let’s get straight to the point: as humans, we all sin. It’s in our nature. Whether it’s telling a lie, being disobedient to our parents or guardians, not respecting the Ten Commandments, or failing to keep the Sabbath day holy, we have all done at least one of these things.

But I’m not here to say we are doomed to burn in hell or that we will never be forgiven. Instead, I am here to encourage you to ask the Lord for forgiveness and to pray for His help in overcoming your challenges.

Scripture says in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” I am here to remind you that God forgives and that He does not dwell on our past. He looks towards our future.

If God can do that, I believe you can too. Ask God to forgive your sins and help you become a better person so that we can join Him in heaven.

Now, in all my messages, I always say don’t take this for granted because it is true. Don’t take Jesus for a fool. Just because God forgives does not mean we can live our lives however we want and expect a simple prayer to fix everything. My dear friends, we must put in the work to improve ourselves.

God forgives, but we need to do our part by asking for His help to become better. Just because you have a past doesn’t mean you should remain there. Ask God to help you look towards a brighter future and to forgive your past.

As it says in Daniel 9:9, “The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against Him.”

It emphasizes that God is merciful and ready to forgive. And He will help you—all you have to do is pray and spend time with Him.

Now, who here loves to spend time with God? Good, that’s a great start to building a relationship with Him and asking for His forgiveness. Amen.
