Prayer for Forgiveness

The following prayer is taken from Prayers: A Communion with our Creator by Don Miguel Ruiz.

As part of my Ministry, I have accumulated a small library of prayer books. This book is a recent addition to my library & I recommend it for those seeking “Inspiration and Guided Meditations for Living in Love and Happiness” (to quote from the cover). Truly, it is worth spending some time reading it and thinking on the wisdom contained with its covers.

Prayer for Forgiveness
Today, Creator, grant me the courage and the will to forgive the people I love the most. Help me to forgive every injustice I feel in my mind, and to love other people unconditionally. I know that the only way to heal all the pain in my heart is through forgiveness.

Today, Creator, strengthen my will to forgive everyone who has hurt me, even if I believe the offense is unforgivable. I know that forgiveness is an act of self-love. Help me to love myself so much that I forgive every offense. Let me choose forgiveness because I don’t want to suffer every time I remember the offense.

Today, Creator, help me to heal all the guilt in my heart by accepting the forgiveness of everyone I have hurt in my life. Help me to sincerely recognize the mistakes I have made out of ignorance, and give me the wisdom and determination to refrain from making the same mistakes. I know that love and forgiveness will transform every relationship in the most positive way.

Thank you, Creator, for giving me the capacity to love and forgive. Today I open my heart to love and forgiveness so that I can share my love without fear. Today I will enjoy a reunion with the people I love the most. Amen.
