Prayer for Forgiveness
Dear Heavenly Father,
I ask today for the grace to forgive everyone in my life. Everyone. I ask for Your gracious mercy on me for the times I have held on to anger, unforgiveness and blame. Today I let it all go. I ask Your grace and mercy upon me and those that I love, those whom I encounter and those who hold resentments against me or against those I love. I ask You in Your Divine Mercy to cleanse and purify my heart and soul and the hearts and souls of all those I love, all those You would command me to love and all those in the world most in need of Your Divine Mercy.
This is Your world, filled with Your children. Heal our wounds Lord, help us to love and forgive one another as on the cross You spoke these words, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” And still today our broken hurting world reflects the truth of Your words from the cross. We still do not realize what we do to our brothers and sisters in this world of Yours that You have made us stewards over.
Forgive us Father and teach us by Your loving example to do better, to be better in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
