Prayer for Reconciliation

madonna

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation. I freely choose to praise
and thank you for all you did through your Son, Jesus Christ, who came
to teach me how to live life to the full.

I pray for (insert name of person you want to reconcile) and ask that
you take him/her into your loving arms and fill him/her with your mercy
and peace.

In the name of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Love, I commit (insert
name of person you want to reconcile) to your authority and ask that you
present him/her to the Father and to the fullness of His glory.

I seek forgiveness, Lord, for not doing this earlier. I ask that
(insert name of person you want to reconcile) may know my personal love
and reconciliation. Here I wish to show forth to (insert name of person
you want to reconcile) and all his/her family all that You have
achieved; that in the bread I will hold is Your life and teaching, Your
body and blood, Your brokenness and healing through Your stripes. In
Your shed blood is the gift of freedom from the guilt and stain of all
sin.

Through the torn veil we have direct access to You, for in rising,
You defeated Satan and his companions, and You became available to all
who seek Your mercy.

Now, may the Angel of Mercy embrace (insert name of person you want
to reconcile) and at this moment may he/she be empowered with Your
loving gentleness. I choose to surrender all my concerns, thoughts,
feelings and desires for (insert name of person you want to reconcile)
and place them at the foot of Your cross to become what You choose them
to become.

Now, Lord because I choose to surrender (insert name of person you
want to reconcile) to your loving care, I no longer will be pressured
nor oppressed by this relationship. May I now be healed and become the
person You intended me to become, to live Your praise and glory. Amen.
