Good morning! Wow. Today’s verses are a great way to begin a new week. Lord, strengthen us as we seek to live these verses out in our lives each day. Lord, help us with the “F” word forgiveness. Enjoy today’s verses.
“14 “If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. 15 But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.” – Matthew 6:14-15 NLT
Today, I won’t ask questions or give further insight. In relation to the above verses, I simply want to pray for us, because the enemy has many of us in chains of unforgiveness. It’s time to allow the Lord to remove the roots of unforgiveness.
Father God, you are greater than any pain, distrust, lie or act of anger. You are healer, trustworthy, truth and you pour out your love on your people daily. Lord, forgive us for sinning against you. Help us to forgive those who have sinned against us. Help us to recognize the behaviors of unforgiveness and turn to you. Lord, change our hearts. Lord, remove harbored feelings from our hearts and minds. Lord, remove things, situations and people from our path that creates a desire within us to sin against you. Build us up in your word and direct our path. Lord, put God-fearing Christians in our lives. Lord, bless us with relationships that strengthen our faith and lead us to a greater relationship with You. Lord, you are the ultimate forgive. Lord, continue to teach us to forgive. Help us to die to ourselves and trust you as we learn to and actually forgive. Lord, continue to work in our hearts. Lord, we pray for victims of abuse, victims of violence and those who have been victimized in some way. Lord, we pray for healing. Lord, remove any form of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Lord, equip us with all that we need to heal. Lord, take away addictions that have suppressed our ability to fully heal from painful wounds and traumatic situations. Lord, help us to focus on you and what you would have us to do. Lord, release us from trying to please everyone and help us to remain focused on pleasing you. Lord, strengthen our relationship with you. Lord, speak to us. Reveal to us areas that are within us where there is unforgiveness and begin to tear down walls in our heart. Lord, forgive us. In Jesus name, amen.
Keep seeking God’s direction. Keep trusting God’s plan. Keep praying, because the Lord hears and answers prayers.
