Prayer Of Forgiveness For Enemies

Heavenly Father, how I bless and thank You for the goodness, grace and forgiveness that You have extended to me. I pray that You would develop in me a genuine spirit of true forgiveness towards others, knowing what grace and mercy You have showered upon me through Christ. Lord I want to follow in the example of Jesus and be tender hearted and full of forgiveness towards others, knowing how much God in Christ has forgiven me.

Help me to speak the truth in love and to never to repay evil for evil but rather to show love, grace and mercy towards my enemies and to pray for those that are unkind and spiteful.  Endow me with a spirit of love for my enemies.. for I know that this is not something that I can do on my own – it is not something that I can do without Your sufficient grace and strength.

Thank You that in Christ I have all that I need for life and godliness and that in Him I have all that I need to forgive others as Christ forgave me  - and so Father forgive my enemies I pray, and bring them all to saving faith in Christ – in Whose name I pray
