Let Go of Unforgiveness
Father, I am replaying my past within my mind. I can’t seem to let go of what has happened, it hurts my heart, each and every time. These thoughts of unforgiveness are consuming me daily and the unbearable pain lingers on. I don’t see any way out of this situation.
But, Lord, I know You will make a way. Please guide me accordingly, to do the right thing based on Your will.
Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Romans 12:19 – Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.
Releasing it all
Oh Jesus, be the center. Let everything else fall away. I will not allow doubt nor fear to overwhelm me: I release it! I will not allow my bitter past to consume me: I curse it out!
Those who have wronged me, I now forgive and set aside our differences, as I allow the example of Christ to be my guide.
Ephesians 4:26-27 – Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.
Matthew 5:44 – Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.
I forgive every situation and every person I once held in my mind. And, as I release it into Your hands, I am set free. I shout praises of joy in Your Holy name. In Your presence is where I always want to be.
Help me to live a Holy life, dear Lord. Show me the way and let me be a light and an example to those around me. I release the past and unforgiveness as I declare I am set free, in Jesus’ Holy name, Amen!
1 Peter 3:9 Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate when people say unkind things about you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God wants you to do, and he will bless you for it.
Prayer for Forgiveness
Oh Heavenly and Gracious Father, I come before you as a humble servant, thanking You for yet another day of health and strength, for peace of mind, love, and for everything that You have generously bestowed upon me.
At this time, I humbly ask Your forgiveness for all my sins. Lord, I ask for wisdom, kindness, and endurance. Lead me so that I would not indulge in these sinful acts again.
Lord, just as You so generously forgive me, help me also to forgive others and not keep any form of hate, anger or revenge within my mind. Bestow the power of love upon us all and just as I forgive so too would everyone. In our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ’ s name I pray Amen.
Ephesians 4:31-32 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
