Prayer

Forgiveness

My dear brothers and sisters: you must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry (James 1:19; NLT).

Love your enemies (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone (Colossians 3:13; NIV).

Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us (Luke 11:4; NLT).

 

Lord,
Help me to be slow
To take offence.

Help me to love my enemies,
And pray for them –

For none of us
Is perfect,

And I, too, have hurt others
Many times.

So, may your words
Be always in my heart –

Forgive us our sins,
As we forgive those
Who sin against us.
