Jehovah Rapha, Lord my God, I bless Your Holy Name, for You are mighty and powerful. As I come before you today, I am reminded of the power of forgiveness. You have shown us the ultimate example of forgiveness through the sacrifice of your son Jesus, and have called us to follow in his footsteps.
I come to you today, humbly admitting that I have not always been quick to forgive. I have held onto grudges and resentment, allowing negative feelings to consume me and control my actions. But I know that this is not the way you want me to live.
Heavenly Father, fill my heart with love toward my fellowmen. Let kindness be my first nature. Let peace consume my thoughts and may tranquility overtake my soul.

Prayer For Grace Through Love
Lord, help me to forgive just as you did when you sent your son to die on the cross of Calvary for me. He suffered an unimaginable death all for lowly sinners such as myself.
I know I don’t deserve your grace, Oh Heavenly Father, yet you gave it through your love. I cry out in desperation.
Matthew 6:14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

The Wonderful Power Of Forgiveness
Father, bless me with the wonderful power of forgiveness. Give me the grace to unconditionally forgive those who have done me wrong.
Give me the strength to let go of all ill-will, to forgive myself of my own failings and sins, knowing that you have already forgiven me.
Grant me Your favor wherever I go, so that if I have done wrong to my brother in the Lord, I may receive his forgiveness in return.

Freedom From Emotional Entrapment

Today, I release the past and I am healed. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen!
