Prayers for all those who have hurt us


#1

Hi everyone,
I am beginning to start praying daily for God to forgive, heal, and bless all the people who have ever hurt me. I think that these are possibly the most difficult people to pray for, so I am going to focus on praying for them every day from now on. I thought I would recommend others also pray for those who have hurt you or your loved ones. In particular I plan to pray the Rosary, asking Mary to ask God to forgive, heal and bless all the people who have ever hurt me. I think that these prayers will bear a lot of fruit in the world and in our relationships, and I wanted to recommend it to others here.
Hope this helps a lot of people.
God bless you all. Amen.

A Prayer for Those Who Hurt You

Dear Merciful Lord,
Thank you for your gift of forgiveness. Your only Son
loved me enough to come to earth and experience
the worst pain imaginable so I could be forgiven. Your
mercy flows to me despite my faults and failures. Your
Word says to “clothe yourselves with love, which binds
us all together in perfect harmony.” (Col. 3:14)

Help me demonstrate unconditional love today, even
to those who hurt me. I understand that even though
I feel scarred, my emotions don’t have to control my
actions. Father, may Your sweet words saturate my
mind and direct my thoughts. Help me release the hurt
and begin to love as Jesus loves.

I want to see my offender through my Savior’s eyes.
If I can be forgiven, so can he. I understand there are
no levels to Your love. We are all Your children, and
Your desire is that none of us should perish.

You teach us to “let the peace that comes from Christ
rule in our hearts.” (Col. 3:15) When I forgive in words,
allow Your Holy Spirit to fill my heart with peace. I pray
this peace that only comes from Jesus will rule in my
heart, keeping out doubt and questions.

And above all, I am thankful. Not just today, not just
this week, but always. Thank You for the reminder,
“Always be thankful.” (Col. 3:15) With gratitude I can
draw closer to you and let go of unforgiveness. With
gratitude I can see the person who caused my pain
as a child of the Most High God. Loved and accepted.

Help me find the compassion that comes with true
forgiveness. And when I see the person who hurt
me, bring this prayer back to my remembrance, so
I can take any ungodly thoughts captive and make
them obedient to Christ. (2 Cor. 10:5) And may
the confidence of Christ in my heart guide me into
the freedom of forgiveness. I praise you for the work
You are doing in my life, teaching, and perfecting my faith.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
