How do we forgive?

“Deliver us, for we are Thy children, those whom Thou hast taught to call Thee Father; therefore though we be Mephibosheths for our deformity, and Absaloms for our ungraciousness, yet show Thyself a Father to us; and of servants, though we be not only ‘unprofitable,’ but evil and wasteful, yet because we are Thy servants, ‘deliver us.'”

Lancelot Andrewes, 1611
