Prayer: Let Go of Unforgiveness

Let Go of Unforgiveness

Father, I am replaying my past within my mind. I can’t seem to let go of what has happened, it hurts my heart, each and every time.

These thoughts of unforgiveness are consuming me daily and the unbearable pain lingers on. I don't see any way out of this situation but, Lord, I know You will make a way. Please guide me accordingly, to do the right thing based on Your will.

Matthew 6:14-15 - For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Romans 12:19 - Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.

Oh Jesus, be the centre, let everything else fall away. I will not allow doubt/fear to overwhelm me: I release it!

I will not allow my bitter past to consume me: I curse it out!

Those who have wronged me, I now forgive and set aside our differences, as I allow the example of Christ to be my guide.

Ephesians 4:26-27 - Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.

Matthew 5:44 - Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.

I forgive every situation and every person I once held in my mind and, as I release it into Your hands, I am set free. I shout praises of joy in Your Holy name. In Your presence is where I always want to be.

Help me to live a Holy life, dear Lord, show me the way and let me be a light and an example to those around me. I release the past and unforgiveness as I declare I am set free, in Jesus’ Holy name, Amen!

1 Peter 3:9

Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate when people say unkind things about you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God wants you to do, and he will bless you for it.

Prayer: Overcoming Complaining - James 5:9 – Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door!

  • Once you forgive the person/person’s that you need to forgive, they no longer have a hold over you or your life. The bottom line is that forgiveness is mostly for you,your health, your peace of mind, and mostly your relationship with God. After you have forgiven, Pray for the person/s who hurt you. This is probably the hardest part of the whole concept. But when you pray for the person/people, God can reach into the whole situation and go to work. Be sure to leave the situation and person/people alone. Don’t do anything else, let God do what He is going t do and you focus on looking forward. Forgive and forget. God Bless.

    • Thank you for posting this – VERY encouraging. I am praying for forgiveness in a difficult situation and trusting for God’s mercy and forgiving the people in the situation. The challenging part for me is the “Don’t do anything else, let God do what He is going to do and you focus on looking forward. Forgive and forget. God Bless.” so please pray I can have that Forward Eyes-On-Christ Focus that draws me nearer to Him! Amen

      • Thank you Codependant for your kind reply. I know how hard this is for you for I have been there, in two separate very difficult family situations that broke my heart. My dear our life is hard at times. But when we overcome more challenges,we become much stronger. I will remember you in my family prayers and ask that our ever loving Father will help you to Forgive but Remember. Remember what happened to you, so that you remain alert to similar situations in the future in order to keep yourself safe. so that you can focus on being the Strong, Compassionate, Empathetic and Forgiving individual your Holy Father created you to be. God Bless You. Evie.
