in the Lord.

Philippians 4:13

teaches me


"I can do all things through Christ

who strengthens me."


I CAN Forgive!

Forgiveness is God's will.

Mark 11:25  NKJV


And whenever you stand praying,

if you have anything against anyone, forgive him,

that your Father in heaven

may also forgive you your trespasses.

Ephesians 4:32 NKJV


And be kind to one another, tenderhearted,

forgiving one another,

even as God in Christ forgave you.

Colossians 3:13 and Matthew 6:14-15

are also strong verses that teach us to forgive.

Power Ideas

Consider writing the scriptures

found on this page,

on index cards

and reading them "out-loud" each day.

(Out - loud is more powerful than silently.)


If you like hymns,

consider listening to the song

"I Surrender ALL."



and read each day


on this page that

motivates you toward forgiveness.


Make a weekly chart of things

( like prayers, Scriptures, songs )

that motivate you to forgive.

Put a box beside each one
for each day
of the week.

Each day, after you complete one of them,

color in the box with a beautiful color.

If you have 7 items,
you may only do 1 or 2 of them today,
but 1 or 2 is still helpful.

Seeing the boxes filled in with vibrant colors



The colored boxes will remind you
and motivate you

accomplished something for the Lord
even if
your forgiveness is not complete yet.

You might want to list each Scripture

on the chart separately.

So 4 Scriptures means 4 colored boxes.

I thank a visitor for that last suggestion.
Patricia posted a similar idea on our
"Prayers for Depression" page.



I yield to you

so you can

Reign in me!


Your word says in

Luke 6:27-28

that you want me to

pray for my enemies.


I will learn how to pray for my enemies.


Seek the Lord and his strength,
seek his face continually.

1 Chronicles 16:11 KJV

More Benefits of Forgiving

by Mary Ng Shwu Ling
A friend of this website

Studies show that people who forgive are happier and healthier than those who hold resentments.

The first study to look at: How forgiveness improves physical health - discovered that when people think about forgiving an offender it leads to improved functioning in their cardiovascular and nervous systems.

Another study at the University of Wisconsin found the more forgiving people were, the less they suffered from a wide range of illnesses. The less forgiving people reported a greater number of health problems.

In three separate studies, including one with Catholics and Protestants from Northern Ireland whose family members were murdered in the political violence, it is found that people who are taught how to forgive become less angry, feel less hurt, are more optimistic, become more forgiving in a variety of situations, and become more compassionate and self-confident.

These studies show a reduction in experience of stress, physical manifestations of stress, and an increase in vitality.

Forgiveness is indeed very powerful and also excellent for one's health and general well-being.

It has many benefits especially for those who are depressed.

Ephesians 6

Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV


10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Continue with verse 14 - for each piece of armor!

Forgiveness Lyrics


A Heart That Forgives

Kevin Levar

I want a heart that forgives
A heart full of love
One with compassion just like yours above.

One that overcomes evil with goodness and love
Like it never happened, never holding a grudge.

I want a heart that forgives that lives and lets live.
One that keeps loving over and over again.
One that men can't offend
because your word is deep within.
One that loves without price like you Lord Jesus Christ.

I want a heart that loves everybody
Even my Enemies.

I want to love like you, be like you, just like you did.

I want a heart that forgives.

I want a heart that forgives
When the ones that are closest and that I've known the longest hurt me the most;
I still wanna love them just like you loved me
Even though I'm hurting.

I want a heart that forgives
when the pain is so deep and it's so hard to speak
about it to any one.

Just like your son,  I give up my rights
to hold it against them with hatred inside.

I want a heart that loves everybody, even my Enemies.

I wanna love like you, be like you, just like you did.
Wanna walk like you, talk like you, just like you did. Wanna be like you, live like you
Just like you did.

Cause a heart that forgives is the heart that will live, totally free from the pain of the past and the heart that lets go is the heart that will know
so much freedom.

Lord, I wanna let it go. God, I need to let it go.

Lord, its been holding me back
and I don't want it...... I don't want it. I don't want it no more.

I don't know exactly what to do to get rid of it,

but - here I am Lord Jesus. Here I am Oh, Here I am  Lord Jesus. Oh,

Lord, I need you. I need you. I know. This is me you are talking to. This is me. This is me. This is me. Lord, this is me.

Lord, I let it go every person every person that has ever hurt me. I gotta let it go
every single hurt,
gotta let it go
every single pain. Gotta let it go.

I let it go. I let it go.

Lord, you can have - Lord you can have it -
Lord you can have it. Lord, you can have it.

You can have it now. You can have it now.

Cause I don't want it, Lord.
