Topic: Forgiveness - A Key To Answered Prayers [December 28, 2016]
Scripture: And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. Mark 11:25-26
Thought For The Day: To forgive is to give at a high level.
It is not enough to only know how to pray; it is important to know how to pray with the right keys. You can only open a door when you have access to the right keys.
The heart of forgiveness is one of the major keys to answered prayers. The anchor Scripture admonishes us to forgive others while praying. This means that your prayer is useless until you forgive others.
Un-forgiveness is one of the worst attacks on spirituality. Whenever the devil wants to deprive you, he will send people to offend you. If you must have access to God at the place of prayer, then, completely deal with the spirit of un-forgiveness.
To forgive means to give up resentment and bitterness. To forgive is to give at a high level; whatever a man sows, he reaps.
Now, how do you forgive?
1. Receive grace from the Throne of grace to forgive: Release the offender in God’s Presence (Hebrews 4:16).
2. Refuse to continuously bring up the past (Philippians 3:10).
3. Pray for your offenders: It is more productive than praying against them.
4. Focus your mind on God’s Plan for your life.
Remember this: To forgive is to give at a high level.
1. Go through today’s study again.
2. Ensure to always forgive your offenders at the place of prayer.
