God – As I wait in Advent darkness for Your Son Jesus to be placed in the manger, the manger which held forgiveness and eternal life for me and all Your children, please help me forgive myself and others for wrongs which have been committed. Not letting go of resentments separates me from You and Your peace.
In Your mercy, please help me find room in the manger of my heart for forgiveness. In forgiveness Your light and love will shine in me just as it lit the sky above the stable in Bethlehem. Amen
