Spiritual Warfare: 'God's Forgiveness Requires You to Forgive'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, April 9, 2024

Whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him [drop the issue, let it go], so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions and wrongdoings [against Him and others].
— Mark 11:25 AMP

Today's Prayer

Lord, I want You to hear and answer my prayer for forgiveness, so before I present my requests to You, I want You to know that I forgive _____ and all the others who have wronged me in the past. I release them. I pray for good things to happen in their lives. I know I can't expect You to forgive me when I don't deserve it if I am not willing to do the same thing for anyone who has wronged me. Release me from the anger and malice I have felt toward these people in the past, and use me however You choose in the future. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
