Jesus teaches on forgiveness

Prayer: Mercy-Full
High and Lofty One
My debt is beyond repayment
Yet, you forgive
Make me mercy-full as you are mercy-full

Forgive me
Heal me
From witholding what you so freely give
From feeding the cycle of revenge
From claiming I deserve at another’s expense

High and Lofty One
You forgive me for a purpose
Grant me your spirit and your heart
Renew and revive your way of life in me

Prayer: How Large Your Heart
How large your heart, my Sovereign
How great your forgiveness
How generous your mercy

How large your heart, my Sovereign
How deep your compassion
How quick your charity

How large your heart, my Savior
How extravagant your grace
How present your hope

Glory to your Holy Name!


For the next few months, I’ll be posting prayers to accompany Bishop Ken Carter’s Bible Study on Facebook. Each week, Bishop Carter will bring in a guest to speak about the passage. We’ll be walking through the last chapters of the Gospel of Matthew. 

You’re most welcome to read along and to join this Facebook discussion group. You don’t need to be a Methodist or attend a Methodist church. All are welcome and all means all.

May the grace of God’s word, the challenge, and the call, inspire us to great faith and great good works in Jesus’ name. – Lisa <
