Heavenly Father, please keep us forgiving. Spare us from the need to do so by shaping us more and more in the likeness of Christ but always keep us ready to forgive. Help us to rejoice in repentance, running quickly to it ourselves. Ever remind us of the mercy that you have shown to us through the cross and make our hearts unhesitating to extend the same to others. Please make this so for us in our family, our church, and among us at uni.
