Almighty God, You have listened patiently to my
concerns and consoled me in times of hardship.
Let me remember Your presence and love for me when I am called upon
to forgive another person for an unkind word or action. You have shown me how to act, what to say, what to do, and
yet I sometimes react in anger and find it difficult to forgive others as
You so often have forgiven me. Grant
that I may recognize this failing in myself and remember Your words and
example whenever I have need of a forgiving spirit.
