DAY 21 – March 5- Pursing Reconciliation in Truth and Love
40 Day Prayer Journey to Life Transformation

The initial week of the Lenten season we were praying about our personal relationship with the Lord. We focused on what should be our primary pursuit of loving the Lord with all heart. The second week we focused on our relationship with our family relationships and the third week our relationship with those in the body of Christ. Today we must focus on repentance and reconciliation in broken relationships in our families and with friends and loved ones and between and among congregations.

Reconcile means-to change, exchange, reestablish, restore relationship, make things right, remove an enmity. Describes the re-establishing of a proper, loving interpersonal relationship which has been broken (Word-Wealth, the Spirit-Filled Life Bible, Nelson Publishers, 1991

Scriptures: 2 Corinthians 5:12-21; Ephesians 2:16-18; Colossians 1:19-23

Repent: Of not being properly reconciled to the Lord and to His children, our family, friends, and other congregations; of allowing disagreements, arguments and self pursuits to keep you separated from others in your family, community and in the body of Christ; of not submitting to the Spirit of truth and love; of not submitting to God’s desire for us to love one another and to be reconciled to one another; of_____________________ ( fill in the blanks) .
