October 8, 2016 – Day 7

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  —1 John 1:9

Pray today, asking God to move you forward in forgiveness. Do you need to give forgiveness to another person or receive it from God? Ask God to search your heart and reveal any areas of sin that may be hindering your prayers.

We can’t expect God to bless our lives and those we are praying for if our hearts are overrun with hate and malice. —Jack Graham (from Lord, Hear Our Cry)
