Depends on your religion.
Many "eastern" religions don't believe there is a God to forgive you ... but that you accrue "karma" or some other universal scorecard that is used by the "universal consciousness" (god by another name, IMO) to decide your fate.

Just believe and know god is real, that's all, since you're always forgiven. Jesus DIED on the cross FOR your sins.AKA what SPF says...

Forgiveness of sins is what Jesus came here for. I was taught to pray as if talking to a friend. As you grow more used to it you can adjust your prayer to express your understanding of what it should be.

You will be forgiven if you ask for. Yes with one only true intention that you will not do the same mistakes and sins again and again. You must repent with your true heart.

If you sin after being forgiven for that sin, you won't be forgiven again?

God sees your heart, DeadXMemories, and it isn't His will that any should perish, the Bible teaches. He is a sincere God and he does want our sincerity. But, we can be open and honest with Him in prayer. He knows us already and He sees that you are concerned when you are. Just confess to Him what is in your heart and if you are sorry even for that same sin, tell him and ask Him to forgive you. He will see that sincerity. And, ask Him to help you to not repeat it, and even though you may not understand exactly how He will help you, trust Him anyway. And, do your best to stay away from that same temptation or whatever you know you can do to help you not repeat the sin. God will help you with the part that is to hard. Yes, if you are sorry and want His help, even with the same sin...He sees your heart and is able to forgive you, as you had asked in your question.

Our holy books shows us the right path but we follow what we think good for us in this world. The love for this world and worldly things cause sins. So God save us from sins and show us the righteous path, and save us from HELL FIRE. AAMMEENNNNNN.

Aijazquraishi, That was a wonderful answer you gave DeadXMemories. Sorry to jump into the comment area, but, I was concerned you may not see the question for a bit and just didn't want to leave DeadXMemories with that question in case it was bothering them quite a bit. Hope you didn't mind as I do believe it was directed to you. Thanks and God Bless!

God sees a sincere heart and a repentant one. He sent His Son so we could be reunited with Himself. He is Faithful and yes, He forgives us. He loves us and the Bible tells us that if any come to Him, He will not cast them out. So, yes, He will hear our sincere prayer and is faithful to forgive. He is True to His Word. God Bless You. You asked how to pray. I'm assuming that you know that Jesus, the Son of God paid the price for our sins, that we would not have to and to know our Heavenly Father, if we believe that Jesus is the Son of God and we want to be forgiven our sins, we can ask God in the Name of Jesus to forgive us our sins and cleanse our heart and life. He will. Romans 6:23 tells us that the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus our Lord. God is merciful.
