PRAYER TO FORGIVE

Father in heaven, I reverence you as God of all the earth. I believe You sent Your son, Jesus Christ, to the earth.

I believe He gave up His place with you in glory, took on human form, taught and ministered to all people who would receive Him and submitted to unjust punishments.

I believe Jesus, the son of man, died on a cruel cross like a common criminal to absolve the debt of my personal sins, the iniquities of my forefathers and the sins of the world.

I thank you, Father in heaven, for raising Jesus from the dead to live forever as my great high priest.

Thank you, Father, for sending the Holy Spirit to set all of those apart who receive Him as baptizer and the One who empowers us to live the life of a true believer.

Father, in the Name of Jesus, I confess that I and those of my family as far back as Adam have not loved, but have resented certain people and groups who have hurt or disappointed us.

We have held:

UNFORGIVENESS, BITTERNESS, PREJUDICES, HATRED,ANGER,RAGE, DESIRE FOR RETALIATION EMOTIONAL MEMORIES AND MURDER IN OUR HEARTS.

 

I confess we have caused hurt to others by our behavior and lack of love. You have told me in Your Word, that to be forgiven, I must forgive.

I choose to obey Your Word individually and in behalf of all those in my family tree.

Father, I plead the work of the blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God, as authorization to come before You in this matter for myself and in behalf of all those in my family tree.

As God of the living who lives outside of time, bring all of the (Father’s last name) and (Mother’s last name) families before You that we may be absolved of our debts of unforgiveness.

I declare and confirm my and our forgiveness to: Each and every person, living or dead, who has in any way hurt, disappointed, betrayed, failed, abused or caused unjust pain to me.

Every institution, organization or authority that has caused undue hardship in my life because of unfairness, thievery or deceptiveness.

Father, I wait now for You to bring to my mind, through the Holy Spirit’s ministry, any specific person or situation I need to forgive.

I will to forgive: (Pause here to see what the Holy Spirit brings to mind. Then specifically forgive each person or situation.)

Father, Your Word says that whoever calls on Your name shall be delivered.

I ask now for deliverance from the curses and effects of unforgiveness and bitterness and do renounce the unclean spirits involved.

I renounce, rebuke and expel spirits of: UNFORGIVENESS, ANGER, VIOLENCE, HATRED, RETALIATION, MURDER AND MEMORY RECALL.

I curse the root of bitterness to wither and dry-up to its roots and never again bear fruit in my life.

I break every curse that has come upon me and my family because of unforgiveness and its effects.

Father, I now confess all of this as my personal sin including the sins and iniquities of my forefathers and ask Your forgiveness through the suffering and dying of Your Son and my Savior, Jesus Christ.

Father, in heaven, I do now receive Your forgiveness knowing I have forgiven. I believe Your Word that says if we confess our sins You are faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Thank you, for cleansing us from all the effects of unforgiveness and bitterness.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, I renounce, rebuke and cast-out the unclean spirits of guilt, condemnation, unworthiness, shame, infirmities and fears that have come in because of a bitter heart.

I stand now, believing I am forgiven, knowing there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus.

I am forgiven, Father. 

I am loved. 

I am Your child. 

Thank You, now and forevermore. 

Amen.
