Forgiveness takes two parties - one to seek for it. Between you and God, you are constantly on the appealing position, and he is constantly on the giving part. If you are sincere, you are guaranteed of God's forgiveness. No matter what mistakes you've done. God promises he will get rid of the blemish of your sins. When God forgives, he doesn't sweep your sins under the carpet; he washes them away. Psalms 86:5
Every year, the ‘Praise Adonai’ was hosted by Saints Peter and Paul Prayer Group. It was held at Don Bosco Secondary School on December 31, 2016.
