Reverend William it is not as difficult as we think, for we make it difficult. There is a different way the only way for if we do not forgive then we will not be forgiven. Blessings in Jesus name
Asked The Lord to cleanse you of all anger and resentment, for it only hurts us and Jesus when we do not. We can not ask to be forgiven if we do not forgive for again it only hurts us and Jesus not the others. Heavenly Father Please Bless us me/us You are The everlasting God, to let go give surrender all to You. To wash us clean of all the anger and resentment surrendering all to You. Please Bless and fill us with Your True Peace which surpasses all understanding. For the battle is Your Father You are my confidence renew my/our heart in You to become more and more like You and less and less than ourselves. Fill us with Your Presence our greatest weapon. In Jesus name Amen
