Last night I went to prayer/bible study with a heavy heart. My heart was hurting and I needed God to rid me of the pain. I was determined to go into prayer to leave this at His feet. I just knew that I was going to cry out to God on my behalf, but as I started to pray, I started to intercede for those that caused me this pain. I began to lift them up and found that the more I cried out for them, the lighter I felt. By the end of prayer, the hurt that I was carrying around was no longer there.
I am free!!
After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10
But I say to you, 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. Matthew 5:44
Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Luke 6:28
If you’re reading this and you don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, there’s no better time like the present to invite Him into your heart and life. If you’d like to do this now, genuinely and sincerely pray this prayer…
I truly believe that You are the Son of God. I confess that I have sinned against You and cannot save myself. Please forgive my wrongdoing and let me live in a relationship with You from now on. I receive You as my personal Savior and believe that You have died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead and are alive and can hear my prayers. I invite You to rule in my life and in my heart from this day forward. Help me to live a life that is pleasing to You. Thank You for saving me.
In Jesus’ name,
