Adapted from Luke 6:30-31
Lord, today I come to you with an important need. Heavenly Father, help me to forgive. You have forgiven us our sins so easily yet I struggle to forgive the sins of others against me.

Help me to forgive those who have hurt me and give me the strength to release the poisons of anger and resentment from my heart. Amen. – Influenced by Colossians 3:13
You are my love, joy, peace, patience, kindness and goodness. You are the one I trust in this world and you are the one I turn to.

Help me to be the same to those I love. Amen. Inspired by Galatians 5:22
