I need Your wisdom and Your guidance. By reading the Scriptures, I have gained a better understanding of forgiving others and with Your help, I willfully choose to extend forgiveness from my heart. I confess my sin of unforgiveness and the damage it has done to my relationship with You and with others. Lord, I ask You to forgive me for hurting myself and those around me as a result of my own hurts and to help mend the relationships that have been affected. Lord, just as You have freely forgiven me, I forgive them. I thank You and praise You for loving me and speaking to me through this season of unforgiveness. I offer this prayer in Jesus’ precious name … the name by whom all forgiveness, healing, and restoration is made possible. Amen.
