Al Chet

“Do you think God will ever forgive me of the most horrible sin of all. an abortion I pray and cry out with Al Chet each day and night, and call out to Him, and I know He says, ‘I have forgiven you’ but I feel as if I cant forgive myself so how and why would He. Pray for me. Rachel.”

“Yes, Rachel. He forgave you the first time you prayed for forgiveness. He's a loving G-d and a forgiving G-d. He looks for ‘turning away’ from our sin; He doesn't want nor need us to walk in guilt for the rest of our lives. If He says that He is ‘faithful to forgive us’ and we continue to walk in shame and guilt, it's like we're calling Him a ‘liar’; telling Him that He isn't who He says He is. Remember King David? He committed murder; had to live with the consequences of his actions, but he was forgiven and went on to be blessed in his life. Allow G-d to forgive you...you're holding Him and yourself hostage. Let Him love you and bless you as you move forward. Use your hard lesson to teach others to guard themselves from falling into the same trap that you fell in. Blessings upon you, Rachel. 'May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you His favor and give you His peace.’" Anonymous.

The sins for which we ask forgiveness.
