11 Oct 18 Days of Prayer: Day 10

Matthew 18:21 – “Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times. Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants.’” 

Main Point: Forgiveness is powerful and an act Christians will do continually throughout their lives. God wants you to grow and live a life of freedom- including freedom from bitterness. In your relationships, you must forgive those who have wronged you, because God wants YOU to be free.  Think of someone you could offer forgiveness to. What would happen if you went into confrontation wanting both parties to win?

Prayer Point: “Father, thank you for forgiving me every single day. Thank you for your new mercies each day. Help me to extend mercy to others. Amen.”
