To know your presence,
To pray constantly,
And to recognise you
In all I meet today.

Forgiveness

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

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

Lord God,
When I can pray

For someone who has hurt
Or damaged me,

Without a single reservation
From my shadow self,

Then I know for sure
That I’ve forgiven them, at last.
