Teach us to forgive

Your forgiveness is total,

no notebook,

tape recorder,

or post-it note

to remind you of that moment


You take our confession,

offered with hands outstretched,

and gently,

like the loving

heavenly Father that you are,

put it to one side

to be forgotten.

No grudges, no itching for judgement,

no resentment or ill-will.

Not like us

who find it easy to say sorry,

but so hard to forgive


Forgive us, Father,

that we are often more willing

to accept forgiveness,

than to forgive,

more willing to accept your love,

than to share it with those

who have hurt us.

Teach us to forgive,

as you forgive

Consider buying us a cup of coffee, It'll REALLY help us improve it and keep it free. Thanks in advance and GOD BLESS YOU!
