The Foot of the Cross (prayer)

Eph 4 32

(Join me in this prayer of forgiveness for others.)

Lord,

Restrain my revenge

And even hostile thoughts

So that I leave room

For Your righteous wrath.

Keep me from judging

The sin of others,

For I am a sinner myself,

I confess I am guilty too.

Fill me with the Holy Spirit so I will be

Inspired to love my offenders,

Like You loved me

Even after I trespassed against You.

Make me to be like Jesus so I will be

Impressed to forgive others

As completely and infinitely

As Christ forgave me.

I lay down my revenge, judgment, and unforgiveness

At the foot of the cross

And look up to see Your Son hanging there

As He speaks these words,

“Forgive them for they know not what they do.”

In Christ’s Name, Amen.
