Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. ~ Ephesians 4:31-32
Everlasting Lord of Peace,
I confess I sin. I am bitter and resentful.
I pull out that old carpet-bag of transgressions and allow bitterness and rage to surround my heart leaving little room for love and forgiveness.
I cast all these black ugly sins on your altar.
Clothe me in your compassion that I may forgive others as you have first forgiven me.
Let your sweetness and kindness grow within me.
It is in your name, Jesus I pray. Amen.
