Do you want God to answer your prayers? If yes, then it is time to look deep within yourself and see if someone has hurt you and as a result, you haven’t forgiven them. Whenever you pray or want true repentance, you must forgive others. Colossians 3:13 (NIV) states, “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Therefore, forgiveness should be a part of your daily spiritual walk, so that our Father in heaven may also forgive our trespasses. Matthew 18: 21, 22 (NIV) states, “Then Peter came to Jesus, and asked, "Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, I tell you, not say seven times, but seventy timesseven times.” You must forgive a person that has sinned against you. Therefore, forgive immediately and escape offense as soon as it occurs.
