Write the name of the person or group of people you need to forgive.
List the specific offenses you have against that person.
Read these offenses aloud to Jesus, the righteous Judge.
Acknowledge aloud to Jesus the lies you came to believe about yourself or your life because of what the offender did to you.
Acknowledge aloud to Jesus it is His responsibility to punish this person for their actions if He sees fit to do so.
Now, because of Jesus’ death on the cross, ask Jesus to grant the offender grace, mercy, and pardon, just like He granted to you.
Face your offender in your mind, telling them specifically what they have done to you. Acknowledge punishment is the Lord’s decision. Tell your offender you have asked Jesus to grant them grace, mercy, and pardon. Tell them you are releasing them to the Lord Jesus.
Tell Jesus aloud that you agree to live with the consequences of the choices that the offender made to hurt you, trusting Him to work them for your good and His glory.
As a follow-up, what step(s) would God have you take toward reconciliation with this person?
