Prayer, spiritual development, personal growth, faith, exploration, wholeness,

My task

When you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too (Mark 11:25; NLT).

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

Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing (Luke 23:34; NLT).

************************************

Lord,

So often it has crossed my mind
To say:

I’d forgive them like a shot,
If they’d say sorry.

But many people
Never say they’re sorry,

Yet, still, my task
Is always to forgive.
