A forgiveness prayer that works (for me anyway)

I have had issues with teaching about forgiveness. Basically because they seem to get away from the all-sufficiency of Christ and the Cross. The teaching of Watchman Nee on this has blessed me (see previous post). The prayer he recommends is
"Lord, I cannot love and I give up trying, but I count on Thy perfect love. I cannot forgive, but I trust Thee to forgive instead of me, and to do so henceforth in me."

A prayer that I think the Lord has given me is
"Lord Jesus, I give to you all those I have hurt or harmed in any way in this life. I give to you all those who have hurt or harmed me. And I ask that I now be filled to overflowing with the Holy Spirit".
