The powers of prayer of forgiveness, and of positive thinking are all very powerful indeed. They are also closely connected to each other. Everything from our health to our finances to our relationships with others are affected by the negativity we hold on to every day.
Are your relationships not as healthy as you would like them to be? Do you have a hard time getting close to people? This may be because you are holding on to the hurts and wrongs committed by someone in your past. Many people go through relationship after relationship finding only disappointment and hurt at the end of each. Think back to your first relationship. Did it end badly? Were you treated badly? Did that person do something to you that you have not yet forgiven them for? Maybe you were the offender and you are angry at yourself for wronging someone you cared about and losing them.
Once you find the original hurt, make the decision to forgive that person and move on. It’s not always easy but, once you have decided that you are going to forgive that person, you will find the power to do so by saying a prayer of forgiveness. Whether it’s another person, God, or yourself, praying about it will help you to forgive more easily, allowing you to move on with your life. You will then allow yourself to get closer to people, trust more, and make the most of every relationship.
Maybe you are suffering from chronic illness or just a general feeling of illness that you can’t find a cause for. Many times, we get so angry at people that we actually cause physical illness simply by our anger and thoughts. Look at your relationships with people around you. Don’t forget to include yourself in your evaluation. Is there something that is nagging at you keeping you angry?
Most times, anger at ourselves is what causes us to make ourselves sick. Maybe you’re angry at yourself for some bad decisions? Maybe you’ve become so angry at yourself that you feel you are not worthy of health and life. This is often very difficult to overcome. Say a prayer of forgiveness for yourself and keep praying until you feel peace and forgiveness. Letting go of the anger will allow you to focus on healing yourself and getting better.
Are you having financial troubles that don’t seem to get better no matter what you do? Think back. What is the source of your financial unhappiness. Were you passed over for a promotion or a raise? Did you not get the bonus you feel you deserved? Have you traditionally made poor financial decisions? You continued financial troubles could be a result of the anger you feel about any of these things. Figure out who it is that you’re mad at and say a prayer of forgiveness towards them. Once you forgive past financial problems, you will find that you have feelings that are more positive toward your future situations and the money will start coming to you more easily.
Virtually any situation in our lives can be solved with forgiveness. It’s not always easy but once you’ve decided to forgive, saying a prayer of forgiveness will allow you to move on with your life in a more positive frame of mind, making things come more easily to you and helping you to deal better with future situations.
