Day 20

Friday, March 17

And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors…

Pray for a willingness to move toward forgiving someone who has hurt you.

God has shown us an inordinate amount of mercy through providing His Son, Jesus. Because we have been forgiven much, we are asked to forgive others. Pray that God would remind you of your own need for forgiveness and how much He has forgiven you. Then ask God to give you His heart for those who have offended you.

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:29-32 (ESV)
