"When It's Hard to Forgive"
Are you struggling to get over something? Are you having a hard time forgiving? If so, here's the prayer for you today:
"Lord, there's nothing harder than trying to forgive when you've been terribly wounded. And it's worse than the offenders show no remorse, and even seem to gloat over the pain they've brought into your life. That's where I am today, and I don't want to forgive.
I know enough to understand that I must forgive no matter what. You have given me no options; but I'm struggling with it.
Help me to realize that un-forgiveness can kill; it can destroy my friendship, my joy, my peace, my potential and even my life.
Today, I choose to forgive those who have broken my heart and wounded me. For Your sake, I forgive. Thank You, Lord, for the strength to walk in love and forgiveness, especially when the memories return and the 'committee' in my head begins to speak. Thank You for the grace to forgive moment by moment, as You have forgiven me. In Jesus' name. Amen."
