In the midst of pain and suffering caused by another forgiveness is the last thing we want to do. It feels unnatural, but scripture tells us it is the right thing to do. Contemplate these scriptures, and take a few with you. Ask God to give you the grace to forgive, and to soften your heart in prayer.
