The Father in heaven has forgiven you even before you have thought to ask him, but such forgiveness is not available in your personal religious experience until such a time as you forgive your fellow men. ~ The Urantia Book, 146:2:4 (1638.4)

When you forgive your brother in the flesh, you thereby create the capacity in your own soul for the reception of the reality of God’s forgiveness of your own misdeeds. ~ The Urantia Book, 170:2:23 (1861.5)
