Thank you so much for the reminder. I pray all day long, and it is hard to pray for people that has hurt you ask God to help me forgive them but I forget to pray for that person. So thank you so much. I will make sure I do this. May God Bless

The old saying' "to err is human, to forgive is divine" is so true. of course it is very difficult to pray for someone who has hurt you, but the sooner you do it, the better you feel. God has a wonderful way of helping us to overcome these hurts, but He expects us to do the right thing in order for us to receive His rewards.

This is a such a blessed opportunity.. God's word tells us to not just pray for those we love, but for those who have done us harm.
Thank you for this reminder and opportunity.

How easy it is to pray for our friends and family members, how hard it is to pray for those people that make our lives miserable. Yet by doing so you make God happier than praying for anyone else. Know why? Because God knows how hard it is to pray for these people. A lot of times these people don't even say sorry for what they have done, which makes it even harder to forgive them, much less pray for them.
How do you pray for someone who has hurt you? It would help if you have already forgiven them, but if you haven't accomplished that yet try to do so. Ask God to help you pray for this person. Now, you may feel like this person doesn't deserve prayer, but you see, everyone deserves prayer.
God rewards you when you pray for those people who hurt you. I know he has rewarded me by doing so. The first time you pray for someone who has hurt you, it will be hard. But think of all the times that you have sinned and received forgiveness from God. We have sinned all our lives and God has forgiven us each time. Isn't it time for you to forgive and pray?
NEXT MONTH YOU WILL HAVE YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS HURT YOU, JOIN OUR TEAM'S GOAL.
