- 1). Pray to God in a humble frame of mind. It is like approaching a parent who is disappointed by his or her child's behavior or actions that were directly opposite of what the child has been taught. But if the child approaches with sincerity and humility, the parent is encouraged to receive the child and extend forgiveness. It is the same with God -- approach Him in humility to obtain the mercy needed from Him.
- 2). Tell God the specifics of the indiscretion. Speak the truth to Him because He is omniscient, so it would not be prudent to try to deceive Him with untruths. Simply express the detail of what was done and, if applicable, who was affected by your behavior. This is called confessing. 1 John 1:9 states, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
- 3). Receive God's forgiveness by forgiving yourself. Oftentimes, it is easier to receive the Lord's forgiveness than it is to forgive yourself. Let go of the issues and make a determination to move away from the behavior. Give thanks to God for extending forgiveness for the actions and behavior.
