A Prayer for our Children - Forgiveness

Lord, forgiveness isn't easy. You had to die to forgive us and we probably underestimate the cost of your forgiveness every day. Please bless our children with an attitude of forgiveness, for each other, for us, for others and for themselves. When they are in the wrong, please help them to admit that to you and to others, and when someone has wronged them, please give them both the desire and the grace to forgive. We know that we forgive because we are forgiven, and we also know that our unforgiveness leads to the building of walls - between us and you, and within our various relationships. Please don't let our children live with walls around them, but teach them and us to always seek and give forgiveness, in your name.
Amen

Amen Floss. Forgiveness is such an essential element in the construction of a happy and healthy world - starting with our families. Happy Easter!

What a lovely prayer series to end Lent and begin Easter in 2011, FLoss. And what a wonderful prayer, following in Jesus' example on the cross, when He prayed, "Father, forgive them, they know not what they do." I've been writing about that at SandwichINK.com and teaching that verse to my grandkids this week so it's perfect timing for me personally, as well. Praying for you, your family, and your computer. :) Have a blessed and beautiful Easter!
