Help Me Forgive

Columban Daily Prayer
December 1, 2020

Lord help me to forgive as I have been forgiven.
Sometimes I glide over the words
of Your prayer the Our Father.
“Forgive us our trespasses as we I forgive
those who trespass against us”.
But often I don’t forgive.
I harbor grudges.
I want revenge.
Maybe I even think I can never forgive
such an insult or injustice.
Lord you died that I might be forgiven.
Help me to offer that forgiveness to others.
And, surprise, it brings a peace
that I thought not possible.
