For if you forgive people their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins, leaving them, letting them go, and giving up resentment], your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

— Matthew 6:14 (AMPC)

Forgiveness for the Win

Adapted from the resource Starting Your Day Right - by Joyce Meyer

Unforgiveness will ruin your day. If someone hurts you, pray quickly, “God, I forgive them in Jesus’ name.” If your emotions feel strained when you see that person, stand firm in your decision to forgive them.

Pray for them, asking God to show you how to bless them. Do whatever God leads you to do for them and let God’s love work through you to heal the rift between you. If you do your part, God will bring your feelings in line with your decision, and you will enjoy your day and your life.

Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You for Your forgiveness and help me to quickly forgive others, just as You forgive me, amen.
