“Refusing to forgive is like drinking poison and hoping the other person will die.”  (The Daniel Key, Chapter 17)


Gracious Redeemer,

Before Your Cross I kneel and see the heinousness of my sin, my iniquity that caused You to be “made a curse,” the evil that excites the severity of divine wrath.

Show me the enormity of my guilt by the crown of thorns, the pierced hands and feet, the bruised body, the dying cries.

Your blood is the blood of incarnate God, its worth infinite, its value beyond all thought.

Infinite must be the evil and guilt that demand such a price . . .

Yet Your compassions yearn over me, Your heart hastens to my rescue, Your love endured my curse, Your mercy bore my deserved stripes.

I kneel before You, a sinner saved from God’s wrath by Your grace. Absolved of all my guilt. I am forgiven of all my sin. Past, present, and future. Redeemed by Your blood— the blood of God’s Lamb! I am forgiven! I am forgiven! Hallelujah! I am forgiven! How could I then ever withhold my forgiveness from someone else?
In expression of my worship of You, I forgive others as I have been forgiven.

For the glory of Your great name,
