Oh Lord, I ask that You help Christians to learn how to forgive one another. Truly, Your light would be shining brightly inside of us if we simply learned how to do this. Every spirit of bitterness and anger would be removed from our lives and those we reach. This is because people would see You, Lord, in us and then glorify our Father in heaven. I love the times I have with my family. They truly are a blessing in my life, and to see that doors have been closed off due to unforgiveness makes me very sad. All I can do is try to reach out to these people with love and pray that one day things will be better between us. This truly is hard to understand. The same people would say that they know that You have forgiven them and they are good to go come death. However, they are missing the most important aspect of forgivenes, which is the dependence of us forgiving, for us to be forgiven by You. Because this is not taught in churches or only taught on once in a great moon, so many people die in there sins thinking that all is right in Your presence. I want to squash that lie from Satan in Your Name, Jesus. Help people learn to forgive, that they may also be forgiven by You also. I love You. Amen.
Genesis 43:27-31 (KJV)
27 And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?
28 And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.
29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother’s son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.
30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.
31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.
We are asked by God to forgive others there trespasses, although it may be hard at first, it is worth it in the end.
