To be those who truly forgive, we have to pray. We have to get the mind of Christ and how He sees others to be able to forgive. If we try to do it on our own, it will be difficult and sometimes frustrating. As we walk in forgiveness through prayer remember these four points: Personal: Pray for the person you need to forgive.
Refocus: Pray that you would always remember that God is in control and if He chooses to forgive, so should we.
Allow: Allow yourself to receive forgiveness.
Yield: Completely surrender yourself to God and His will.
The Lord's Prayer in Matt 6 is an excellent blueprint so that we can remain in a place of prayer and continue to forgive as the Lord forgave us.
