Praying Scripture Over Your Son
Day 11— Forgiveness
Son of God,
You are the One True light, the Righteous One, and the Only Begotten Son. You are Loving Kindness, the Just One and You are Eternal Life. You are the All-Consuming Fire and Our Advocate. You're the Author of Our Faith and the Author of Peace.
One way that we obtain peace is by following what Your Word says about forgiving one another. This is a choice that we make, and I need to confess that it is sometimes very hard for me to do. We must choose to have mercy and grace and to show forgiveness when someone has wronged us. Your Word says to forgive whatever grievances we may have against one another. By faith and out of obedience, we need Your help to choose to forgive and to trust that You will honor our choice to obey You.
Lord, I pray that my son will confess his sins and that You will be faithful and just, to forgive my his sins and to cleanse him from all unrighteousness. Help me to be a good example of forgiveness to my son and forgive me for any unforgiveness in my heart. Let my son choose to forgive others who have wronged him immediately and not hold onto any unforgiveness, because it only breeds resentment and hate.
Oh Mighty God, You are slow to anger and quick to forgive; please, have mercy on my son. In Matthew, it says, “If you forgive other people when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” Almighty God, I know that you have great compassion on us. Please, blot out my son's transgressions, wash away all of his iniquities, and make him pure and holy in Your sight, by the Blood of the Lamb.
Lord God, please help my son to forgive as freely as You do.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.
Help us, God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name’s sake.
