Praying from Matthew 5:23 relating to Forgiveness, Reconciliation, Worship.
Dear Lord, as I come before your altar to offer my gift, I am reminded of the importance of reconciliation with my brother. If there is anything that I have done to cause him harm or offense, please help me to seek forgiveness and make things right. May my heart be filled with humility and love, and may I always strive to live in peace with those around me. Amen.
Verse: “If therefore you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you,
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to reconcile with their brother before offering their gift at the altar.
