Lord, I lift this person in up prayer. It is so difficult when you need to forgive repeatedly, especially when the offender takes your goodwill for granted. Even so, Lord, give us the courage and grace to rise above the offenses. I declare blessings of Proverbs 19:11 (ESV) “Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.”hurtobiasPrayers: 107Requests: 50

Do not wait for your feelings to kick in before you forgive. Begin to say out loud in your prayer time that you forgive this person or these persons. The feelings will catch up on their own.pattysyellowbusPrayers: 1044Requests: 10

Amen! We lift you up – we can all relate to the natural act of holding grudges. But God has called us to forgive – a supernatural act. He has given us the power as His Holy Spirit resides inside us to allow God’s character come forth in our actions. WE become like JESUS! Our goal. Praise God for Your courage to offer this prayer request. Know You are being prayed for and also Know you are not alone. May we all be strengthened and resolve to forgive. As hurtobias says, your feelings will follow the declaration. Alleluia for the power of God that resides inside each of us. We Love You Lord and Praise Your Name! Amen.l.l.arruplenPrayers: 161Requests: 7

Standing in agreement with these prayers forgiveness and not holding grudges. As Christian counselor, Henry Cloud comments on this topic:
“The good news about giving forgiveness is that it’s not really about the person who hurt you. Forgiveness does free the perpetrator, even though he may be unrepentant, in denial or dead. But as a deeper level, the person whom forgiveness frees is yourself.
When you cancel emotional debts, we can become free of the past. Free of the bondage of hurtful memories and experiences. Free of the need for the perpetrator to apologize before we can get on with our lives. And free to love people who are different and more caring than the perpetrator. If we hold on to the hurts of others, awaiting justice, we are less able to take in the freedom of our own forgiveness.”
Coming from a family who have mastered the art of grudge-holding, I encourage you, sister, to make every effort to do the opposite.
Lord, we pray victory over this for ajv. Help her find a safe person/place where she can openly speak the hurts inflicted upon her, where her life experience can be validated, where she can see and know the outrage of the sin she has suffered under, where she can be loved for who she is. Only then Lord, help her move towards forgiveness – a blessing for herself. She may never want to talk to the perpetrator. That’s okay. Forgiveness is the gift she gives herself. And, she may decide to have little or no contact with the person(s) who hurt her.
Sister – I’ve been through this with my mom. I had to learn how to hang up on her when she would call and verbally abuse me. I had to set some strong boundaries with her. And after talking with my Christian counselor, I forgave her. I did NOT let her get close to me, I did NOT spend a lot of time with her, because her behaviors did not change, I had to hold her at arm’s length. It’s sad and it’s what she chose. ~gailfelixculpa723Prayers: 1155Requests: 5

Heavenly Father, I stand in agreement with these prayers. I pray that you would pour your love and your Holy Spirit on this child so that they can release these grudges and extend forgiveness toward those who wrong them —in your power, and not merely in their flesh. Strengthen the faith and the resilience of this child as the result of these trials. Let your words and your Spirit be ever present in their mind to assure them that they are following your leading of peace and humility. This is difficult, Father! Give this child your supernatural peace that passes understanding so that they act as Jesus would act even when men around them choose to betray them, commit evil acts and torment them repeatedly! Give this child an extra measure of your grace, and grant them the blessing of an open door to fellowship with believers who can support them as their faith is tested.gsimoninPrayers: 2421Requests: 19
