There is freedom in forgiveness.
Parents Daniel & Leila Abdallah have created i4give Day as a remembrance of the four angels that were tragically lost on the 1st of February 2020. This is to also help others who have suffered in a similar way. As well as this, it is a National day of forgiveness where you could find someone you can forgive or ask for forgiveness.
“Our four children are now our four saints and this day is for them. Forgiveness is the greatest gift you can give yourself and others. The more you practice the better you become at it and it allows you to live peacefully and to heal. Forgiveness is more for the forgiver than the forgiven” Danny & Leila Abdallah.
You are encouraged to search your heart and find someone you can forgive on this day. Set them free and feel the freedom of forgiveness.
Special thanks to the Federal and State Government for their support and endorsement of this day.

Disrupting Mercy: The gift of extreme kindness motivated by compassion
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you’ Ephesians 4:32
God of love and mercy, Thank you for forgiving me. Please forgive me my sin. Give me strength and courage to forgive those who have done or said things that have hurt me. Sometimes all I want is for them to be punished but I know this is not Your way. Give me the power to forgive them for the hurt caused, And the strength to not dwell on it for too long. Fill me with Your strength, compassion, and love so I can be your heart and hands here on earth as Jesus our Saviour showed us. Amen
We all make mistakes!
When we have been dealt an injustice of any kind, we can sometimes decide to hold grudges, bitterness and anger instead of moving on by forgiving those responsible for hurting us.
We have a choice in how we respond. Start with this prayer.
