Forgive As God Forgives, Keep Trusting Him(Matth 5:44; Isam 24:12). Merciful God, I forgive them: the people who’ve caused me pain … the people who’ve wronged and betrayed me. I forgive them, because You forgave me. Please bless those people, Lord. Transform their lives and bless them like You have blessed me. Please help me trust You to determine how justice prevails. Thank You for making me a part of the Body of Christ in the world. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
