NOVENA PRAYER — DAY 3
Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ name, and by the power of the Spirit, teach me the true meaning of forgiveness. I repent of changing the meaning of forgiveness to make it humanly possible.
Mary, “the Mother of Forgiveness,” thank and praise the Lord with me forever for the miracle of forgiveness. “To err is human, to forgive is divine.” No one can forgive by human power. Forgiveness is a miracle. Pray for me to receive the miracle of forgiveness you received on Calvary at the foot of the cross.
Mary, “the Mother of Forgiveness,” pray for me.
“Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, I ask for the willingness to forgive and the grace to forgive immediately all who have sinned against me. On Calvary, You gave Mary the grace to forgive me for my part in killing her Son. Then you gave Mary the grace to become my mother (Jn 19:26-27).
Mary, Mother of Forgiveness, may I forgive others as you forgave me in imitation of your Son. Mary, take my hand and lead me as I decide to accept God’s grace to forgive (name the person) for (name the sin), etc.
Jesus, thank You for giving me Mary, ‘Mother of Forgiveness’ to be my mother.
‘Mary, Mother of Forgiveness,’ pray for me.”
