Prayer to Forgive Those that Hurt Us
edit_button

Almighty God, You have listened patiently to my concerns and consoled me in times of hardship. Let me remember Your presence and love for me when I am called upon to forgive another person for an unkind word or action. You have shown me how to act, what to say, what to do, and yet I sometimes react in anger and find it difficult to forgive others as You so often have forgiven me. Grant that I may recognize this failing in myself and remember Your words and example whenever I have need of a forgiving spirit. Amen

I am not a Catholic but have found much comfort in Catholic prayers. This prayer has helped me with a difficult issue I have with my daughter's husband. Thank you.

I am a Catholic and have a problem with somebody at my church.I have tried to extend the hand of friendship but am cold-shouldered, ignored and criticised.It causes me much pain because I don´t even know what is wrong! My friends call me oversensitive and maybe I am.I have a strong urge to show my anger and "fight back" but that is not acceptable. I think this is a lesson in humility and pray for humility. How can I resolve this? I pray for this person and try not to judge.Maybe I could go and talk to the priest without naming names and situations and ask for advice? I certainly confess my angry and hostile thoughts.

I wrote the above and me and that person have made peace and are now very friendly. I think there was a misunderstanding.

Praise God and Our Blessed Lady who truly answer prayers

Thank you for this prayer of forgiveness and rememberance of how I am forgiven on a daily basis by our father. I pray to be christ like in my actions and thoughts and never forget the sacrifice made for me. In forgiveness I am free. In forgiveness I am blessed. In anger I am in judgement where I have no
Right to be. In anger I am a prisoner
