As I consider the awesome miracle of forgiveness, I am reminded of how much You’ve forgiven me…and how careless I am in forgiving others. Bring to mind any unforgiveness I harbor. Help me release the bitterness. Heal my heart.
I am reminded of the harsh, thoughtless words I’ve spoken in haste and the damage those words have done. Forgive my carelessness and the pain I have caused by speaking without thinking. Touch those I hurt…heal the wounds I caused. Please reveal to me those I need to ask for forgiveness…then give me opportunity and courage. Teach me how to measure my words, temper my responses and see people as You see them.
America’s restoration will be found in forgiveness. Someone has to take the first step. Let it be me.
