A lot of prayer has to go into reconciliation. Both parties usually feel offended or victimized. We need to put aside blaming and defensiveness. We may not really want to reconcile with one who has hurt us, but we must because it is right. “For then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding” (Romans 14: 19). He has already provided the way for us.
“For He Himself is our peace, Who has made us both one and has broken down in His flesh the dividing wall of hostility” (Ephesians 2: 14).
