NOVENA PRAYER — DAY 7
Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ name, and by the power of the Spirit, each year in recent times countless thousands of Christians are being martyred for love of You. Thank you for giving these martyrs the grace to forgive.
Mary, “the Mother of Forgiveness,” pray for me to forgive as you forgave Judas, Peter, the apostles, Pontius Pilate, the high priests, and me.
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.”
