FORGIVE BEFORE PRAYER After a teaching how important it is to have such strong faith that if you "BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT, AND IT WILL BE YOURS" Jesus reminds us "AND WHEN YOU STAND PRAYING, IF YOU HOLD ANYTHING AGAINST ANYONE, FORGIVE THEM, SO THAT YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN MAY FORGIVE YOU YOUR SINS" [Mk 11:24-25 NI], implying that lack of forgiveness can interfere with answered prayers. Seeking God's guidance before prayer can also give God the opportunity to remind of any unforgiveness. Have you forgiven everyone? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
