The Lord’s prayer Week 5 Meditation.

forgiveness (2)

As Children of God we have been saved by a loving SAVIOUR.   All our trespassers/sins were forgiven and cast into the sea of ‘forgetfulness’ – all the past, all the old life mistakes and errors….these have all been dealt with at the CROSS.

But, while we live and breathe our very humanity means we, like ‘all little children’ , will continue to fall short of the standards and behaviour of our Father.

That’s why the Lord’s Prayer is so profound.    This appeal is that our hearts and our lives be ever cleansed -‘ Create in me a clean pure heart – Psm 51.   Even more, far more than this is the reminder………As I forgive you, so must you forgive ‘others’.   Which others? All others – even our enemies.     Hate forever wrong actions, but come to a place where we can forgive the people caught up in the actions.

Is this easy?    No way!   But this is why we pray:

Abba, my Father, Forgive me today my trespassers/faults/and sins the same way as I ask You to help me forgive ALL who sin or trespass against me.

In Your Name, and for the sake of Your Kingdom.

In Jesus’ Name.


About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
