College Prayer Guide 12: {Forgiveness}

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”
(2 Corinthians 5:17 NASB)

At some point in every student’s college career, they will likely mess up or be hurt by someone.  Something may happen that can’t be undone or they will either experience or cause someone else great hurt.  It could be a broken relationship, a failed class, or some decisions that weren’t wise.  Pray that when these things happen, they’d be met with grace and forgiveness.  Pray that they’d be able to forgive themselves and whoever else might be involved as God forgives them.  Pray that they’d remember their identity as God’s daughter or son and be able to live as the new creation He made them in Christ despite what earthly consequences the situation may have.  Seek God’s wisdom in how you might be able to guide them to be able to live in freedom from guilt or shame.
