    Forgiving Others -Gethsemane Prayer

    I was recently introduced to this prayer method. I have found it to be very humbling and spiritually strong. I hope you too will be blessed by this.

    Forgiving Others with Gethsemane Prayers

    1. I hold up to the Lord all the things about _________ that trouble me.

    Father, I hold every hurt up to You as I list them and place them in my cupped hands. I ask You to pour Your love and healing power through them. I ask you to take all the pain out of my memory, mind and spirit and to leave me with the wisdom. I ask you to redeem every experience I have had. I choose to trust you to deal with them.

    2. I hold up to the Lord all the things about me that trouble ___________.

    Lord, show me all the ways that I have troubled __________ and the hurt I have caused them. As I honestly hold each of my sinful responses up to you in my hands, I ask you to forgive me for the damage I have done and to bring my flesh to death on the cross. I ask You to pour Your healing power over _________ and anyone I have hurt and to heal all their hurts and pain.

    3. I hold up to the Lord my heart's desire for _________.

    Lord, _________ is Your child and You have a wonderful plan to heal, restore and to equip them to fulfill Your purposes in Your Kingdom. They are Yours and I choose to agree with You as you are faithful to finish that which You have begun in their life. I choose to pray in faith believing for Your plans, Your purposes, Your will, Your ways and Your timing in their life. I praise You ahead of time for victory, blessing and promotion in their life.

    4. I hold up to the Lord my heart's desire for myself.
    Lord, I also hold up to you the desires of my heart and Your plans for me. I choose to release all of them to You and place them on the altar. I choose to trust You as You perfect all that concerns me and my calling in You. I receive Your Spirit, Your mind, Your power and Your love to say what You say to say and to do what You say to do, one day at a time. I am not anxious as I choose to believe that nothing anyone else does or says can limit Your faithfulness to me. I choose to be filled with Your Spirit, Your gifts and to demonstrate Your fruit -- even to those who need it the most. Amen

    When we pray not only for our hurts, but also for the person who hurt us we admit that we may have offended the other person without knowing or intending to. We even admit that we may have intended the other person some hurt. We seek God's forgiveness not only for ourselves, but also for the other person. We are acting in brotherly love when we do this.

    Be blessed

    Dear Deacon Bob,

    This prayer and your other prayer, Forgiveness 5 ways, are so excellent. I don't know where you found them, but I'm glad you did.

    I prayed both of these prayers this morning. They were certainly very relevant to something going on in my life with a certain co-worker. I know that God used you to post these prayers, Deacon Bob. God bless you richly.

    This is so wonderful. I really like these prayers that you have listed here, they are very helpful.

    It's important that we pray about these things, when we hurt someone, when someone has hurt us, an praying for ourselves == because some of these things can drag us down spiritually.

    If you don't mind, I would love to use these prayers in a Bible Study that I will be conducting!

    May You be blessed Deacon!

    One thing that opens me up to forgiving others is meditating on the cross and how much I've been forgiven.
