The Healing Nature of Forgiveness

A Community of Love   Matthew 9:2-13

Prayer for the Day:
Lord of boundless love, forgive us of the barriers we build- walls of our own construction, often created in your name. Break through our hardness of heart that we might see your forgiveness at work in the world around us.  Hold our hands and lead us across the boundaries that lead to healing. Amen

Question for reflection:
What borders do you find yourself crossing, seeking God’s healing?

– Josh Brockway, Director Spiritual Life & Discipleship
