You can ask forgiveness for your sins in the name of Jesus Christ from God, but desiring forgiveness because of the consequences to be fallen due to sin committed is not considered as genuine repentance that God loves to forgive. So let the consequences fall on me but I will not sin against the God is the attitude that God loves and forgives. David said to the LORD when he sinned and repented “let thine hand, I pray thee, be against me, and against my father’s house. ~2 Samuel 24:17
