Lord, forgive me for the times I have been bitter, angry, and unforgiving towards my spouse and children. I confess that I am often quick to sin against my loved ones and to relate to them in an unloving way. Lord, bring to my remembrance Jesus’ own gracious kindness, forgiveness, and forbearance towards me, so that I can extend to them the same kindness, forgiveness, and forbearance that I have received.
Prayer of the Day
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
