He r also said: O People, Repent! Verily I repent to Allah, a hundred times a day.

(243)  

He r also said: Whoever says:

 I seek Allahs forgiveness, besides whom, none has the right to be worshipped except He, The Ever Living, The Self-Subsisting and Supporter of all, and I turn to Him in repentance.

Allah would forgive him even if he was one who fled during the advance of an army.

(245)

He r also said: The nearest a servant is to his Lord is when he is prostrating, so supplicate much therein.

He r also said: verily my heart becomes preoccupied, and verily I seek Allahs forgiveness a hundred times a day.

preoccupied: i.e. in a state of forgetfulness. The Prophet r always used to increase in his remembrance of his Lord, in attaining a nearness to Allah and having consciousness of Allah to the extent that if this intensity lessened in anyway, he would regard it as a sin and would then race to seek forgiveness from Allah.
