Pray for Families (Healing through forgiveness)


Greetings Prayer Warriors,

One the journey of life, we can’t help but occasionally be wounded either physically or emotionally.  Sometimes these wounds can be quite debilitating.  Both leave scars, and scars fade, but somehow emotional scars can return to the surface.  They can start to effect family, personal, and business relationships.   We can harbor anger, resentment, vengeance, self-righteousness, and ill-will.  Unfortunately these feelings become our prison.  They become like a poison that continues to inhibit our spiritual growth and begins to separate us from God.

Today let us pray for forgiveness and healing.

For the ability to let go of past hurts,
Lord soften our heart.
For the courage to love those who have hurt us,
Lord lend us your heart.
For the humility to reach out to You,
Lord grasp our hand.
For the ability to see your image, even in the most unlikable,
Lord lend us your eyes.
When we are feeling unlovable and broken,
Lord shine Your light,  penetrate our woundedness, and bring us healing.

Heal me, LORD, that I may be healed; save me, that I may be saved, for it is you whom I praise.  Jeremiah 17:14

Lord, continue to bless all families.

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Bring healing to a friend.  Guide them to forgiveness.   Pass it on.
