Father, Forgive Them... - Luke 23:34


“Father, Forgive Them”  (Luke 23:34)

Click Logo to LISTEN NOW!
Greetings!

BlogFam, this week will be a week of prayer via blog.  We will spend this week in prayerful reflection upon the Seven Last Words of Jesus Christ from the cross.  Please join us everyday for prayer and invite others to pray along with us.

Let us pray…

Forgiving God,
We come as men and women created in your holy image.  We come as men and women who have often been distracted by conversations, images, and activities that do not reflect your holiness.  We come as men and women who seek your forgiveness so that we can be restored into right relationship with you.

On today, we acknowledge that ignorant minds and rebellious hearts nailed you to the cross yet you prayed that the Almighty would forgive.  We acknowledge that you endured verbal insults and social rejection yet you prayed that the Almighty would forgive.  We also acknowledge that your unconditional love and tender mercy was beaten and bruised, despised and denounced yet you prayed that the Almighty would forgive.

“Father, Forgive THEM for they know not what they do.”

And Lord, we will never fully understand the expanse of your forgiveness but we are grateful that you have extended your forgiveness in our direction.  Therefore, we confess that we have not been as forgiving as we should have been.  We confess that we have not sought to be forgiven as often as we should have done.  And we confess that sometimes our words of forgiveness have not released the one to whom we said was forgiven because we are still bound in our hearts and in our minds.

So, help us Lord to forgive as we have been forgiven.  Help us to forgive those who have tried to crucify our hopes, our dreams, our purpose, our inspiration, our imagination, our love, our peace, and our faith.  Lord, help us to forgive ourselves for the ways we have kept ourselves from experiencing the joys of a life filled with your word, your will, your way – A life filled with YOU.  Lord, help us to humbly seek the forgiveness of those to whom we have said or done anything to dishonor the holy within them.

Father, forgive US for we know what we have done.

Forgive us and restore us into right relationship so that we can love you with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength AND love ourselves AND love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

IN THE NAME OF THE ONE WHO FORGIVES beyond our capacity to understand…
AMEN.

God Loves You and I do too!
