It is so difficult to forgive people who have hurt us or our friends.
We want to hit back - and sometimes we do.
But you taught us to love our enemies no matter what they have done.
Forgive us, Lord, when we do not forgive others.
Help us to understand why people do and say hurtful things - and let our hearts be filled with love for them.
In Jesus' name,
