This is a great spiritual exercise for individuals, families, healing ministries and retreat groups
The Lord says that the fasting He desires is to set the oppressed free. There is much oppression when we are not able to forgive someone and hold a grudge against them.
Spend time in this prayer as a healing for yourself and to those whom may have hurt or sinned against you, and for those you may have caused hurt or pain to yourself. Remember, it is natural to still feel hurt and/or pain for any wrong that has been done to us. But taking steps to consciously forgive, and bringing Jesus into the pain will help begin the healing process, and take the power away from satan who wants to keep us in the pain because it is an open door for him to enter and provoke us to sin.
After each exercise, list as much as you can and bring it all to Jesus at the foot of the cross and visibly nail the pain to the cross to console the heart of Jesus, and watch what He does with the pain you have given to him in return.
Set the captives free!

I forgive any member of SOCIETY who has hurt me in any way; those who have hurt me by criminal action or who have harmed my family, I forgive all in public life who have passed laws opposing Christian values. I forgive all the unfair, anonymous sources of pain and annoyance in my life.
Heavenly Father, I now ask for the grace to forgive the ONE PERSON IN MY LIFE WHO HAS HURT ME THE MOST for the sake of my love for Jesus your Son who loves and forgives them and died for them. This one is the hardest for me to forgive, but I now choose to forgive them before Jesus, even through I am still angry and hurt. I also make peace with the one family member, the one friend and the one authority figure who has hurt me the most.
Lord, is there anyone else that I need to forgive? (Be still and listen for what may come to your heart)
Thank you Father for the immeasurable love you have for me and for your Son Jesus who is setting me free in this moment. I now pray that your blessing will come on all those who have hurt me. Lord do something special for each of them this day. Thank you Lord. I praise you in your mercy and goodness. I ask for the grace to always strive for peace, and to choose love over all things. Jesus I trust in you. Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us.
