Prayers for Everyday

FORGIVENESS

Leave a comment

Lord, you taught your disciples
to pray: “Forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.”
Although some children forgive easily,
it took me a long time to get over
my childhood.
As adults we find
that the more we practice forgiveness,
the easier it becomes,
until it’s almost automatic.
Thank you, Lord, for forgiving us
and teaching us your way.

Matthew 18: 21-22:
Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but I tell you, seventy–seven times.”
