creative prayer idea: forgiveness & reconciliation

We’ve published a new resource, based what came out of worship yesterday morning. We hope you will find our creative idea for praying for forgiveness and reconciliation helpful – whether you are praying for broken relationships close to home or huge, global situations of conflict.

Each week we have a different issue in focus at the Sanctuary’s centre, alongside rotating round different nations, regions and responding to headlines and updates from key organisations. This ensures we cover key topics even if they don’t come into the spotlight of the media.

This week, forgiveness and reconciliation came round as the issue in focus… just a matter of days after the shooting in Emmanuel Church, Charleston, USA and the incredible example of forgiveness demonstrated by the families of those who were killed. Their example brought home Christ’s costly call to forgiveness again – and demonstrated its power.

On Wednesday, our characteristic of God in focus was ‘present’ and celebrating a life lived with God – as well as for him – and thinking about the difference the Spirit makes in our lives spoke even more about forgiveness – its source, its impetus and its power.

We hope you find this resource’s creative ideas, which began in that session, as helpful as we did to use on your own or as the basis to pray in a more structured way as a group or congregation.
