You said “It is finished.” Is it really finished? Were we really worth the life of Your Son? Were we really worth the pain and the agony? The answer is yes. So take away the doubt. There is no doubt that we are loved by God, the Father because we were worth dying for. You were pierced for our transgressions and our iniquities. By Your wounds we are healed. By Your death and resurrection we are set free from the lies of this world. By Your words we know that this life is not the end. So instead of running, running away from our problems, running away from this life help us to run to You and to our future with You letting go of the past. Letting go of the mistakes. Because You already have. Forgiveness and healing starts with the one who first loved us. So help us to cling onto your forgiveness and to cling onto Your love and never letting go so that we can forgive ourselves and others. Help us to be more like You.

Lord, guide us so that we don’t hurt people with our words. Stop us from lying and bearing false witness. Because in doing so we miss the opportunity to spread Your word. We admit that we are sometimes less than honest to our neighbor. We don’t like confrontation or a disagreement. We want to be liked. And so we might stretch the truth beyond the breaking point. Forgive us, Lord, when we testify falsely in our lives. Help us to be someone who speaks and lives truthfully. We want to reflect Your character in all that we do and say by being truthful. Help us to spread Your truth and shine Your light of grace with our words and actions. All praise be to You, God of truth! Amen.
