Reconciling Forgiveness

Forgive us for doing wrong, as we forgive others. (Matthew 6:12)

There is no sweeter request than the request to be forgiven. The request, whether it is directed at God or to a person, is one of deep humility. The request acknowledges wrong doing and confesses the need to be reconciled. Interesting how part of the prayer commits to forgiving others.. the one reconciled must also accept all requests for reconciliation.

Dear Father of all forgiveness.. we come to you acknowledging the wrong we have done (confess specific wrongs) and ask to be reconciled to you afresh. We commit to being agents of reconciliation and ask for your help to forgive those who have wronged us.
