Marriage Prayer: Teach us to Forgive
Dear Heavenly Father,
Teach us to forgive. Your Word tells us to forgive each other as You forgive us.
We’re reminded of His last moments on earth when Jesus cried out on behalf of those who crucified Him, “Father forgive them; for they know not what they do.”
In His deepest moment of sorrow, He loved.
But we’re petty. We hang on to our hurt. We keep track of who’s right and who’s wrong. Ignoring the truth, we pamper our pride.
Give us the strength to let go of our pride and grab hold of grace.
Whether we’re right or we’re wrong, may we always choose love.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. – Ephesians 4:31-32, KJV
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. – Ephesians 4:31-32, NIV
