Seeking Peace through Forgiveness 


Heavenly Father, I praise You for giving us salvation and full forgiveness. I praise You for sending Your Son so that we could have a relationship with You again and so we could be kingdom builders here on earth and be citizens ready for heaven.  

Holy Spirit, Your word records what You inspired Isaiah to write that would tell of
Jesus life to come but also how we should live when it says: The Lord God has
given me the tongue of the learned, that I may know how to sustain him who is
weary with a word; He awakens me morning by morning; He awakens my ear to
listen as the learned. The Lord God has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, nor did I turn back. I realize that wisdom and experience have both been at the for front of what You have taught me. I have faced many difficult situations in life and I have often failed or stumbled, but when I cried out to You, You heard me and lifted me back up to keep walking.  

Holy Spirit help me to be better about how I talk to people and when I talk. Help me to be focused and to truly listen with both my ears and with my heart. Help me to always treat people with dignity and respect as long as I can in a conversation. Help me to never view myself as superior and to always appreciate that they are Your creation. Holy Spirit help me to ask for forgiveness when I do wrong. Help me to take ownership of my sins and of my mistakes. Help me to do the best I can to follow the scripture that says: Therefore, let us pursue the things which produce peace and the things that build up one another.  

Teach us to number our days and night, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Relent O Lord! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants. Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble. May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children. May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for kindnessus—yes, establish the work of our hands. Amen.
