Here are two examples from thescriptures:
1) The Lost Son
After Being submerged in sins and wild living far from his father’s home the scriptures says: “He came to his senses and said Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son” (Luke 15:7-19) So the key to the Heavenly Father’s acceptance is to confess the Lord’s right to be our Lord and Sovereign and the confession of our sins before him.
2) The prophet David
After falling in his terrible sin said before Nathan the prophet: “I have sinned against the Lord” Nathan replied: “The Lord has taken away your sin, you are not going to die” (2Samuel 12:13) Just believe now that God accepts our confessions in accordance of Jesus death on our behalf and his precious blood the price of the sins of all human kind.
Let’s bow our head together and pray from all our hearts:
OUR HEAVENLY FATHER I come to you with all my sins I confess I am a sinner I have done what is evil in your sight and you did put up with my wickedness I come back to you and repent with all my heart.
LORD JESUS I come to you my redeemer who died for me on the cross have control of my life Lord and accept me as your son.
HOLY GHOST Fill me now Oh Spirit of strength and love so that I may hate the world and love the Heavenly Father.
MY GOD I love you and follow you change me oh Lord for I have put my trust in you In Jesus name and in the full intercession I trust that you did heard and did answer my prayers Amen.

Lay aside your guilt and rejoice in Jesus redemption for you
In order to grow, to improve and to go on in your life you have to lay aside your guilt feelings and leave behind your past memories, forget completely your past from now on. One of the major things that hinders your continuity in your way of salvation and prevent you from enjoying the freedom from sins is your very past that chases you wherever you go. That’s why there’s a very important step to make through our way of salvation which is to have the evidence and the blind faith that when you came to the Lord in prayers through the previous. truth he did fully accept you, blots out your transgressions and will remember your sins no more.
Here are some of the verses uttered by God to encourage you get the assurance in your heart that God through Jesus redemption and atonement will remember not your past transgressions any more.
“I even Iam he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake and remembers your sins no more” (Isaiah 43:25)
“I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you” (Isaiah 44:22)
“Who is a God like you, who pardons sins and forgives the transgression you do not stay angry for ever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us, you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.” (Micah7:18-19)
Now that God has forgiven your sins and blotted out your iniquities and promised he will remember them no more why do you still remember them? If God has promised to forget them you should forget them to yourself and if Satan wants to remind you of your sins tell him Jesus has forgiven me and pardoned my iniquities. He died for me because he loves me and I love him too. Cast the burden of your sins, mistakes on the Lord at once and trust on him he is your redeemer, your representative, and your substitute, he said:
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)
Now you did engage yourself in a true living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ the source of all strength. Also he will provide a spiritual strength on every day basis to enable you to live a new life with him in accordance to the scriptures:
“Therefore, if any man be in Christ he is a new creation, old things are passed away, behold all things are become new” (2 Corinth 5:17)
Summary of the four essential truths of salvation
1- The first truth: “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved” Which on other words means believe that Jesus is the savior who came not to give you a”salvation certificate” but to let you enjoy a true salvation from the power and the bondage of sins, and to set you free from sickness and from Satanic warfare.
2- The second truth: “Sell everything you have then come follow me” which also means that you have to repent from your sins and from the love of the world and from your worldly style of life retreat from your past and follow the Lord with those who wants to live a holy life and always remember to keep faith in Jesus, he is God Almighty who could fully save you.
3- The third truth: “Confess the Lord Confess your sins” Regret and repentance without the confession of the mouth will never lead you to acquire salvation or set you free from the power and bondage of your past life. You have to confess your sins with your mouth.
4- The Fourth Truth: Lay aside your guilt feeling and rejoice right now in Jesus redemption for you.
