Forgiving Me

Lord,

you see me,

you know me,

and you died for all of me,

my sins, failings, and weakness,

help me to forgive as you’ve forgiven me,

renouncing my judgement,

relinquishing my right,

to hold my offender to justice,

letting go, releasing all to you,

open-handed and palms down,

trusting your judgment, responsibility, capability,

to make all things right,

in your infinite care and kindness.

Today I forgive myself,

and release my shame and guilt,

open-handed and palms down

into your ready and willing hands,

realizing you’ve known me all along,

and never stopped loving me,

guiding me, strengthening me

to fulfill your blessed purposes

in and through this life.

I worship you wonderful Redeemer,

God who is good, loving, and Life!

Amen.
