    Repent asking for forgiveness and ask Christ into your heart. But do pray for others according to the Word. Be blessed in Christ Jesus. Amen. Acts 7:60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. 1 John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 1 John 5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

    Lenetra the only sins you need to ask God forgiveness for are your own each day. I myself ask God when realized. But someone who has sined aren't yours and God isn't going to Judge you for something your dad or mom or anything that happen to others in life. Day by day the book records in heaven of our good works and our bad and if you repent for yours that are bad are erased. In CHRIST Name always

    God will always honor his word he means what he says and there is always a consequence for disobedience. Obedience is better than sacrifice.
