Mark 11:25-26, And when you stand praying, forgive, if you have a problem with anyone: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses!
Here is a condition that each individual must meet before their prayers can be heard or answered. We must realize that an unforgiving spirit will short-circuit the power of prayers.
God forgives for Christ sake and that is the way we are saved. But if you and I are going to have power in our lives, there must be forgiveness on our part.
Are you holding a grudge toward someone? Has someone said something or done something to you that has hurt you deeply? We must remember that we say and do things daily that hurt our Lord, but He’s always willing to forgive. We must work hard to become more like Jesus!
