A Prayer of Forgiveness

Welcome back to the Encouragement Challenge. As week 3 comes to a close, I would like to offer up a prayer for each of you. This week has been tough. Forgiveness is a hard thing to grasp. Today, I would just like to pray for you. Have a wonderful weekend! See you back next week for the conclusion of the Encouragement Challenge.

Heavenly Father, thank you so much for the wonderful readers of our blog. We long to bring You honor in everything we write, say and do. I pray for each person who reads this blog. I pray that they will experience Your love, Your forgiveness and pure joy in their lives. Lord, we’ve talked a lot this week about forgiveness. I hope that we have all searched our hearts & lives and been able to forgive others while allowing Your forgiveness to shine through to our lives. O Lord, free us from all anger and bitterness. When we are bitter and angry, we cannot feel Your perfect peace or Your presence. Please help us all to remember that forgiveness is Your command. Let us turn away from all bitterness and remember the forgiveness that came through the gift of Jesus Christ. Help us to not judge others. You have forgiven us, Lord. Let us forgive others, love them and help them without judging them. If there is anyone reading this who does not know You as Lord of their life, my prayer is that you would pierce their hearts and allow them to hear You speak to them. Let them admit You are God and they have sinned, Believe that Jesus is Your Son, and Confess You as Lord of their lives. Protect us from evil. In Jesus Name, Amen!

Be a blessing to others,
