Prayer Focus - Forgiveness of Others
Matthew 6:15 “But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”
When we make mistakes, we go to our Heavenly Father and ask for forgiveness with confidence, relaying on our redemption and His Holy, Divine nature to forgive us. We cannot however, take this privilege and grace for granted because there is a stipulation … we must forgive others as well.
Application and Prayer Journal Entry:
(a) Name the person(s) that you have trouble forgiving.
(b) Chose one of the following ways to forgive them
Write them a short letter (journal the letter or note)
Call them (schedule the date and time you will call, journal what you would say)
Meet with them (schedule the time and place you will meet with them)
(c) Journal how you and they felt afterwards
Study and then write your interpretation of this Scripture as it would apply to you and today’s prayer focus.
Matthew 18:21-35 "Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven." (Continue Reading)
Reflection: Page 42
When we hold on to un-forgiveness we stabilize a blockage between ourselves and God; not to mention the bitterness and resentment that hardens our hearts. Forgiveness plays a key role in getting our prayers answered.
Pray for a release from the anger and resentment you have towards any person that hurt you, then reach out to God for total healing. Ask Him to empower you to make peace with that person by forgiving them.
