A Key Element of Prayer

In the Bible, we read that Jesus taught us to pray the Lord’s prayer. It is a model we are to follow and pray. Jesus taught us many important things in this prayer. He taught us to praise God, seek His will and ask for provision. But, He also taught us something else that is very important.

In Mark 12:25-26 Jesus tells us, “25 “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”

The next part of the Lord’s prayer deals with forgiveness. As Jesus reminded us in Mark, it is important to forgive so that we can be forgiven. Forgive those today just as the Lord has forgiven you.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
