God of all healing,
You forgive me.
Before I regret what I have done.
Before I ask you to.
Sometimes before I even realize I need to be forgiven.
Thank you for each new beginning.
Thank you for the healing and renewal.
Thank you for loving me so much you don’t give up and go away.
Help me when I struggle to forgive my companions.
When I want to hold my anger.
When I want revenge.
Help me to see others with your eyes.
Eyes of love and mercy.
Eyes of compassion and healing.
Fill me with the strength and the love to forgive.
And walk with me while I try.
