Prayer for May 3: Please pray with me. Forgiving God, today we pray that just as you are forgiving and have forgiven us, we might be able to forgive those around us who we believe have wronged us in some way. We ask for the humility to be the first to forgive and to be so radical as to forgive without prompting. Help us to turn away from blaming others as the root of our problems. Open our eyes to see what you are calling us to change in our own lives. And walk with us as we start this journey by forgiving ourselves because you have forgiven us first. Amen.
