“When you are praying, if you are angry with someone, forgive him so that your Father in heaven will also forgive your sins.”

Mark 11.25 

Heavenly Father, you are kind and forgiving, and you always love me. Help me to love others with the same love that you have shown me. 

I take responsibility for disobeying you by holding a grudge and not forgiving others as you have forgiven me. Please forgive me. 

Help me to obey you by forgiving those who have hurt me. I choose now to forgive the wrong and hurt that has been done to me. I forgive (name individuals, including yourself if necessary) for (list the things they did to you) and I no longer blame them for doing this to me. Release me from any resentment, bitterness, anger or hate I have held inside. 

Father, as you have promised in your Word, please heal my wounded heart. I choose now to show mercy to those who have offended me and ask that you will bless (name individuals) in all that they do. 

Psalm 86:5, Romans 5:5, 2 Corinthians 10:5, Psalm 147:3, Luke 6:27, 1 Peter 3:9

CLAIM A WORSHIPPING CHURCH

In your Word, Lord Jesus, you ask that we worship you in spirit and in truth. Craft our worship by your Spirit, I pray, so that it is an expression and an experience that will glorify you.

CLAIM A UNIFIED CHURCH

Father, you ask us to be imitators of you and to walk in your love, with humility, gentleness and patience, making allowance for each other. Oh Lord, may it be everyone’s desire in ourchurch to be more like you, and to put to death the works of the flesh. I bind the enemy that would seek to plant seeds of envy, strife and division in our fellowship and I release love and unity, for your Word shows us that where there is unity you command the blessing.
