Lord, I pledge to be as forgiving
   as You have forgiven me.
Never let me betray anyone – and if I do, Lord,
   please help me to say at once that I am sorry.
Teach me that You always forgive,
   no matter what the sin.
May I be quick to forgive others.
I am reminded that if I do not forgive others,
   neither will You forgive me,
   and my soul will remain forever filled
   with the tense corruption
   that lack of forgiveness brings.

Chestina Mitchell Archibald, chaplain at Fisk University

If you forgive those who sin against you,
   your heavenly Father will forgive you.
But if you refuse to forgive others,
   your Father will not forgive your sins.
