Prayers of Repentance


I’ve committed some bad sins and would like to turn my life around. I have worked to live more virtuously but I have difficulty devoting the time to reflect in prayer.

Would you mind recommending some prayers of repentance to get me started? Thank you. :slight_smile:

  1. The Our Father
  2. Divine Mercy Chapel (takes less than 10mins)
  3. An Act of Contrition
  4. A Prayer for sincere repentance
  5. Repentance Prayers

I would recommend a thorough examination of conscience and a trip to confession.

God bless you!


Psalm 51 is a favorite for me.
