“And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
Mark 11 : 25 – 26
New King James Version
Many a times we wonder why our prayers seems to hit a brick wall and bounces right back in our face!
Its simply because whenever we violate some spiritual principles we shoot ourselves in the leg. An Unforgiving heart hinders the earth from yielding it fruitfulness in our endeavours and heaven from releasing our blessings.
For our prayers to be answered we have to consciously walk in forgiveness.
In the Lord’s prayer it was mentioned that “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us”. Wow, for me to be forgiven, I need to forgive others. That is the key I will be looking at today.
We barge into the prayer mode, with baggage of hate, unforgiveness and bitterness. We expect the heavens to answer our numerous prayers without following the scripture that says we must first forgive or better still resolve issues we have with any one before we approach for worship whether in form of thanksgiving ,supplication or intercession.
Husband, you quarrel with your wife and you didn’t settle it before you approach the throne of grace, Its a NO NO in the kingdom brethren. If you don’t want your prayers to be hindered settle with your spouse.
Friends, some of the reasons our prayers are not answered is because unforgiveness lurks in our heart. Let go friends, no matter what the person do or did to you!
You are doing yourself a whole lot of good by forgiving others. Release people and relieve yourself of unnecessary baggage; enjoy unhindered answer to prayers.
God is waiting for you to forgive others and you will walk into divine realm of answered prayer.
