    2 Ways to Know That You Need a Forgiveness Prayer

    We recently discussed the importance of forgiveness prayers. Forgiving people who have wronged us is a hard thing to do, but Jesus says this:

    But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44)

    Let’s consider two ways of recognizing when you may need to say a forgiveness prayer:

    Anger: Does the thought of a specific person make you cringe with irritation?  Or do you get that angry little feeling in the pit of your stomach when someone says a specific person’s name?  If so, then it’s time to say a forgiveness prayer. Remember, if you’re walking in anger then you can’t be walking in love because they’re opposites!

    Sadness/Hurt: If the thought of another person makes you sad, then you may need to say a forgiveness prayer. When hurt is still present in your heart, then you haven’t completely healed from the situation. Saying a forgiveness prayer can help you release the emotional pain that another person may have caused you. Once you’ve released that emotional burden then it’s much easier to move forward in happiness.

    God tells us to forgive so that we can heal and move forward with love.

    Is there anyone in your life that you need to forgive?
