Prayer for Forgiving Others

During Yom Kippur we confess our sins and failings to the King of the Universe as we request His mercy and forgiveness for all of our errors. But this year (2015) during the Kol Nidre service, the congregation was led in a prayer to forgive others the wrongs that they have done to us. As we have learned from Messiah, there are two unforgivable sins: blasphemy of the holy spirit, and unforgiveness. Many expressed how meaningful this prayer was to them, so I am sharing it here for you as well.

    Thank you for publishing this. Our Messianic congregation has been in turmoil since last fall with the “rabbi” leaving, then the current leadership driving others away. Acting more cult-like than not. We are now ones that were driven away. As we grieve the loss of everything we knew we seek to repent for our own resentments. We will be praying this! Praise Yah for your ministry.

    Dear Tamara, I am heartbroken that your community has been devastated as it has. It seems like people are determined to find ways to not get along in spite of the two great commandments – to love God and to love one another. Anything that elevates itself above these is sure to bring failure. I pray that your hearts will quickly heal, and that you will find (or begin!) a community of your own that will grow in health and strength. Shalom & Blessings, Grant
