Spiritual Forgiveness Quotes

Forgiveness quotes, prayers and exercises can be used to give God access to our minds to help us learn how to forgive someone.

Below you will find some powerful forgiveness prayer quotes that you can say at a time of upset to bring your mind back to peace.

Stop Trying To Forgive On Your Own

As the saying goes “To err is human, to forgive Divine.”

The mistake we often make is trying to forgive on our own.

Are you willing to forgive?

Do you know how to stop feeling upset with this person or yourself?

Do you want to feel at peace over this issue?

If these are your answers, then if you knew how to forgive someone you would have already done so.

Stop trying to forgive.
Instead, say a short forgiveness prayer...

Dear God,
Help me to forgive and find peace.
Thank you

Prayers don't have to be complicated. :-)

How Important Is Forgiveness In A Course In Miracles?

Forgiveness of someone else is a fundamental teaching of A Course In Miracles.

The benefit of forgiveness of someone is that it allows us to experience self-forgiveness. According to ACIM, self forgiveness - accepting the Atonement for ourselves - is our key assignment.

The following forgiveness quote tells us that to forgive leads us back to knowing ourselves as part of God's love.

“Those who forgive are ...releasing themselves from illusions, while those who withhold forgiveness are binding themselves to them.
As you condemn only yourself, so do you forgive only yourself.”
(W-41.1, A Course In Miracles quote)

Notice how that forgiveness quote also explains the following lines in the Our Father prayer:

“Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
(Matthew 6:12, Bible verse)

Other People Are A Mirror of Ourselves

A Course In Miracles says that when we forgive someone we are always forgiving a reflection of ourselves.
When we see the innocence in them, we see our own beauty and innocence.

Forgiveness Prayer Quotes

The following forgiveness quotes are wonderful to use as forgiveness prayer quotes in a situation where you feel annoyance or judgement towards someone:

“I bless you, brother, with the Love of God, which I would share with you.
For I would learn the joyous lesson that there is no love but God's and yours and mine and everyone's.”
(W-127, A Course In Miracles quote)


“I would see you as my friend, that I may remember you are part of me and come to know myself.”
(W-68, A Course In Miracles quote)

It is well worth learning these forgiveness prayer quotes by heart.

You might like to follow them by saying Amen.

Amen is a powerful word to remind ourselves that we are inviting God to take it from here.

We are doing our part by setting our intention. We invite God to work in us.

I have said these quotes on forgiveness through gritted teeth on many occasions, but I said them anyway!

The gift I receive is a greater awareness of my own innocence and of the unconditional love of God.
Using these forgiveness quotes allows God access to lead me both in how to forgive someone else and how to forgive myself.

When I got ill, I felt fear and anger about many things. I knew that in order to find the strength to stay alive, and hopefully recover, I needed to find a way to be at peace.

I developed a simple and powerful forgiveness exercise which I applied both to myself and to other people.

We can apply “the release” to every difficulty in our life. The forgiveness it brings allows us to serve God, to serve the world and to move towards greater joy in our lives.
