My Gracious and Loving Father, 

I come to you now in prayer; I thank you God that even though I have made many mistakes in my life, you are a God of forgiveness. Today I ask you to forgive me and I make a commitment to dedicate my life to You, to do Your will and to follow Your plan and purpose for my life.

 Father I know because I have humbly asked, you have forgiven me of all my wrongdoing but I am having trouble forgiving myself. Help me God to understand that I canít change what has already happened but I can change what will happen in the future.

 At this moment I surrender all my bitterness, loneliness, and my low self-esteem to you Father. I forgive all those who have hurt me and I forgive myself for all my mistakes of the past.

 By your grace Lord, I will use this time of imprisonment as a time of study, prayer and personal commitment to You. Instead of allowing this time of my life to be a crushing blow of defeat, I will use it as a steppingstone to higher accomplishments. I also ask you to prepare me to face society and assume responsibility when I am released; as one who has learned their lesson and benefited from their mistakes.

 Most of all God, thank you for loving me and looking beyond my faults to see my needs. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
