“And when you stand praying, forgive … if you do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.” Mark 11 :24
This verse was spoken to disciples. You ask, “Is it possible that someone like that could harbor resentment?” Yes! I have, and God has dealt with me concerning it. How about you?
Smith Wigglesworth once refused to pray for a lady in one of his meetings. When she asked him why, he said, “You have bitterness in your heart toward another sister in this service.” Reluctantly, she went back to the lady and gave her a cold, formal handshake. Wiggles worth shouted back to her, “Lady, you will die of your sickness, if you don’t repent and make things right.” As five thousand people looked on, she put her head on the lady’s shoulder and began to sob and ask for her forgiveness. The other lady did the same. Suddenly, it started to spread through the crowd, and people began to forgive one another of old resentments and unresolved issues. Wigglesworth shouted, “Now, come up and I will pray for you!” You don’t have to,” she said, “God just healed me!”
Could this be the key to unanswered prayer in your life? Take some time today and think carefully about it. Read Mark 11 :22-11 :26. When you forgive, it positions you to receive all God has for you
