Praying from Matthew 5:24 relating to Reconciliation, Worship, Forgiveness.
Dear Lord, as I come before your altar with my gift, I pray that you would help me to remember the importance of reconciliation. May I not hold any grudges or bitterness towards my brother or sister, but instead seek to make things right before offering my gift to you. Give me the courage and humility to seek forgiveness and extend grace to those who have wronged me. May my heart be pure and my intentions be pleasing to you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Verse: leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to leave their gift before the altar, go reconcile with their brother, and then come back to offer their gift.
