And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave You.
Most loving Father!You know that I have been nurturing bitter thoughts in my heart all these days. This makes me restless and I am losing my peace of mind! Thank You for convicting me.Father! You have commanded us to forgive even our enemies and do good to them. When You were nailed on the cross, You showed Your ultimate love by forgiving those who whipped You, mocked at You and crucified You. But I am just a human being Master and I am only clay. I, on my own strength, am not able to overcome these bitter feelings. So help me Lord, fill me with Your compassion and love so that I can forgive those who have hurt me and forget the wrong they did for me. When You have forgiven a sinner like me so freely, how much more should I forgive the people who have oppressed me! Let me reflect Your love Lord! Heal my wounded heart with Your gentle hands and restore in me the joy of forgiveness! Thank You for strengthening me O Lord! In the precious name of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, I pray.Amen!
