A Prayer for Forgiveness of Others 

A Prayer for Help to Forgive Someone That Hurt You

"Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander; along with every form of malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another; as God in Christ forgave you." Ephesians 4:31-32

Dear Heavenly Father,

Help me to forgive. Take the burden of unforgiveness and bitterness away from me. Help me to give up my right to get even. Free me from the toxic emotions that are keeping me in the painful grip of the past. I want to forgive as you have forgiven me. I may not feel like forgiving, but I know with your strength and in your power, I can forgive. I know I need to forgive for real healing to happen.

I trust you God to deal justly with the person who’s violated and wronged me. I will leave the justice up to you. I don’t want to be overcome with evil, but desire to overcome evil with good, by forgiving. I am confident in your word, which proclaims I can do all things through you, who gives me strength. I will surrender my unforgiveness to you and forgive. Thank you, my precious Lord and Savior!

In Jesus Name,

  1. I had a friend that was always putting me down the relationship that we had was not good so we had to leave each other then I gave a guy an amount of money to get me a truck and he took the money but I never received the truck or my money back and inside I am very angry I pray that I can forgive them both but it's hard
