Pronounced: ä’-fe-sēs

“He is the one whom God exalted to His right hand as a Prince and a Savior, 
to grant repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.  Acts 5:31
Definitions: release from bondage or imprisonment, forgiveness or pardon, of sins (letting them go as if they had never been committed), remission of the penalty

Father, please forgive me for I know that all I do and all I am is not always Your way.  I am sorry and ask Your forgiveness.  I am a sinful one and am also Your child.  I come to You with a heart of heaviness and weakness at the same time for I cannot hold the sin myself.  Satan holds it and I mistakenly listen to him at times.  Judge me accountable and forgive me, please.  I know Your precious Son has taken my sins off my back and has paid the mighty price for me.  For me.  Thank You for giving me a timeless gift, Your cherished hand, the beauty of this eternal and weightless indebtedness.  I am forgiven.  In the Name of Jesus, on the Cross for me, Amen.

I forgive …

peaceful (not chaotic) time with my Lord
peace on my insides
peace from the outside

I forgive …  
to give
my heart
in honesty
to pardon
release to myself, to the forgiven one
unconditional love 

When I forgive as He would have me forgive, it is…
with peace
from my heart
in God’s way
in God’s timing
with or without reciprocation
with a sense of relief 
in grace
with gratitude 

May I be able to forgive, Lord, as You would have me do.  May I also be able to forgive when You would have me humble myself before You at the foot of the Cross, before those whom I am to pardon.  May I humbly come to You for the help I would need in order to forgive with grace and mercy and in truth.  O Lord, I need to stand with You and allow You to give me strength that I would forgive completely, without reservation, with no hesitation, and in Your love.  I truly do thank You for giving me opportunities to forgive and be forgiven.  And, most of all, thank You for forgiving me, undeserving as I am.  Yet, You forgave me, were crucified for me.  I am crucified and have new life in You.  Oh, Lord, thank You.  I love You dearly.  Amen. 

I have been crucified with Christ. 
It is no longer I who live, but
Christ who lives in me. 
And the life I now live in the flesh I live by
in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 
Galatians 2:20
