Forgiving God, as we end what for most seems the longest month, even though it is the shortest in days, may we find forgiveness. In this month, our patience seems shorter, and out willingness to be charitable also seems challenged. May we end this month willing to ask for forgiveness from those we may have hurt, or ignored. Give us the ability to forgive those who may ask for, or need without asking. May we move into this next month healed, refreshed and ready to meet the days to come. Let us love one another as you love us, and go out of our way to meet the needs of those who are suffering and in need. All this we ask in your most Holy Name. Amen.
