Pray to Forgive

September 14, 2017 - 10:11am
Prayers for the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

The theme of today’s Gospel is God’s incredible mercy to each of us. Let’s consider that gift together now in prayer.




We all know that we have sinned. As you think about your life and areas where you have failed to do the good you know you could have done, imagine Jesus reaching out and saying to you, “My dear Servant, I have paid this debt for you. It is completely erased, taken off my Father’s books. It is no longer held against you. As the Father has forgiven you, now, go and do the same to anyone who has harmed or offended you.” As you consider this, offer your own prayer of gratitude to the Lord.




Is there someone you need to forgive? Set aside some time this week to spend before the Blessed Sacrament—either in an Adoration Chapel or before or after Sunday Mass—thanking Jesus for having paid the debt of your sins and asking for the grace to forgive those who have sinned against you.
