Thread: God, help me forgive

    God, help me forgive

    I wrote this for myself and kept it in my wallet for several months. It really helped! I know it's a bit repetitive, but remember that this was not meant to be public at all. I'm posting it because it's probably the most sincere thing I've written/said.
    -----------

    God, help me forgive. Help me to eliminate all thoughts of malice and revenge. Help me to accept responsibility for my wrongs, acknowledge the rightness -- and blessing -- of correction, and help me to move on and help others. Help me to accept the past, learn, and improve from the experience. God help me to forgive all things, big and small. Please save me from being consumed by thoughts of hurt and anger. God, help me forget and forgive. Help me forgie as Jesus Christ forgave. I pray for the strength to help, assist, and bless those who hurt, exploit, and condemn me. This is a difficult and scary prayer, but I need it and I need You. I need your grace, strength, and healing power. Please help me forgive. Please let me forgive, God. I ask you for the courage to forgive completely. Please let me bless and help everyone, even those who hurt me. Please let me remember that forgiveness is strength, not weakness. Forgiveness is power, not frailty. Forgiveness is freedom, not submission. Help me God. Please.

    I am so happy for you that you have been released from this anger and bitterness ..in the end it would have only hurt you anyway.

    Lovely heart felt prayer!
    "People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated?" - D A Carson

    very true... it's like a huge weight being lifted off your heart... like your mind being released from the prison of a painful past... into the freedom of a stronger future
