Grace to forgive prayer-walk

11 days that will transform you life
A pilgrimage on dusty roads  through spectacular landscapes. The sun paints artistic shades on sandstone mountainsides. The wind carries a strange freshness in the air. The Maluti mountains boast their splendour. The African soil under your feet reminds of a journey deep within.
Let your heart and mind find its resting place in God. Read more

On a morning prayer-walk, I was praying for motorists as they were passing by. As usual, this was done in an inconspicuous way.

It is about 2 months now since the Holy Spirit started prompting me to be sensitive while interceding for motorists, because He would lay on my heart specific things to pray for as specific people would pass by.

Bearing into a light icy wind, as I was walking up a hill, with some vehicles passing by, I was in an instant struck by the words: “Grace to forgive”. I realised that, since I was praying in the spirit, it was a prompting of the Holy Spirit to pray that out in words for someone. As I walked along, praying that for the person (only God knows who and why), I realised the profoundness of those words. It is in a way a wonderful blessing to receive the grace to forgive. After all … I often thank God for His grace by which He forgives me.

Yes, we have been redeemed through his blood, as He forgave our sins … all in accordance to the riches of His grace.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. (Ephesians 1:7-10, ESV)

Lord Jesus

I pray that You make us more like You.

I thank You now Lord that it was You who first forgave us – through Your grace.

And as we live under Your grace, help us to be gracious to others … and to be forgiving. So Lord I ask that You will give us a measure of grace and boldness in the heart to simply forgive … without strings attached, and that relationships will be restored.

And I pray that this will also lead to a fresh and new relationship with You too Lord.

Your love is of such a full measure that You will do what is needed to get your children back in their relationship with You – Ohh … grace to forgive …

Thank You Father God

Thank You Holy Spirit

Thank You, thank You Jesus

Amen

Lord give us grace to forgive …
