NOVENA PRAYER — DAY 8
Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ name, and by the power of the Spirit, I pray that I will be a messenger of reconciliation (2 Cor 5:18). After I have forgiven those who have sinned against me, send me forth to pray, preach, and teach that all will forgive all people for all sins committed against them. Make me a witness of your miracle of forgiveness.
Mary, “the Mother of Forgiveness,” pray for me to help others to forgive as you helped the Christians in the early Church to forgive their persecutors.
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.”
