Prayer: Jesus, we are often angry at the way we are treated in this world, help us to not sin but to seek for ways in which we can be Your servants, and share Your loving-kindness in all we do. Amen.
Read: Ephesians 4: 25-32
Why is it important to ask God for forgiveness in our lives? Why is it important to ask God for forgiveness for our Church?
The proof of God’s amazing love is this: Christ died for us so that we have eternal life. Let us admit our sins before God and ask for forgiveness. The more we ask for forgiveness, the more we can live in God’s light and love.
List all those who have caused you anger, or irritation, or disappointment. Then read each name or incident and say, “In the love of God, I forgive you…..”
End with this prayer: Great God, we thank You that we can come to You and ask for forgiveness of those things we have left undone or unsaid. Thank You that we can come to You and lay before You those people that have angered or irritated or disappointed us. In Your love is Your wholeness. This we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
