I pray for Your spirit of forgiveness and let me cast all my cares and burdens upon You.
I pray that I will be able to forgive even if it is a process.
Release this pain and anger by teaching me Your nature, Your mercy, and Your compassion.
Let me not repay evil for evil because vengeance is Yours Lord
Let me abide in Your word and set me free, oh Lord.
May this forgiveness will lead to healing, comfort, and peace.
And may this forgiveness bring You honor and glory.
This is very challenging, but I want to please You.
I want to have a holy relationship with You.
And I want to be worthy to call You Abba Father.
Let this be my lifestyle and remind me to forgive, for I have been forgiven.
Let me choose love even when it feels impossible.
Grant me with sympathy, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
And search me, oh God, know my heart.
See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.
In Jesus’ name, I pray,
My Graces Will Come Upon You, And They Will Know No End
