Forgiveness Prayer

LENTEN PRACTICE 2014

Forgiveness Prayer

I draw upon the creative, Divine Spirit within me,
a Spirit of strength and new possibilities,
and I forgive
anyone who has hurt, upset or offended me,
anyone who has damaged my reputation,
anyone who has caused me grief or pain.

I draw upon the creative, Divine Spirit within me,
a Spirit of peace and graciousness,
and I desire
to be thoughtful of others,
to do and to wish no one any hurt.

I draw upon the creative, Divine Spirit within me,
a Spirit of healing and compassion
and I ask for
a deeper awareness
of this Spirit in myself and others,
in our fragility,
in our weaknesses,
and in our common desire
to give the best human expression we can to this Spirit
in our living and loving.
