When we are wronged, offering forgiveness is not often our natural response. Yet God asks us to forgive not for empty piety, but to help our souls heal. May this prayer aid you in the work of your heart.
Be a comforter in my wounded places.
Where I have been painfully wronged,
grant me the grace to extend forgiveness.
Help me create the boundaries I need
to continue to love
without allowing myself to be hurt in the same way again.
I pray I may be whole and free
and able to forgive.
