how to forgive everyone

Unforgiveness is a barrier to deliverance.

Mark 11:26 King James Version (KJV)

26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

We have to forgive everyone to receive forgiveness but the problem is how to forgive when we have been hurt so badly.  The key is transferring our hurt, pain, rejection, shame and guilt to the cross.

Hebrews 9:28 King James Version (KJV)

28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.


Jesus Christ was slapped, spat on, had beard ripped, thorns put on his head, beaten about the head with a rod, flogged till his skin was all ripped up and then hung on the cross naked.  He was rejected by his people, betrayed by his disciple and cut off from his own Father when he bore the sins of the world.  He did all this so we don’t have to bear the burden of our sins any longer.  If we believe Jesus bore our sins, then pray this prayer to transfer all our burdens to the cross of Jesus Christ:

Dear Father, I believe in Jesus Christ and what he did on the cross.  I now transfer all my guilt, shame, rejection, abandonment, pain, torment, abuse, humiliation and suffering to the cross of Jesus Christ because Jesus bore my sins so I do not have to carry the burden of these things anymore.  I’m washed clean by his blood, just as if I had never sinned.  In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.


Now stop being angry.  Carefully consider the fact that the person who hurt us will be no more and could end up in Hell if they don’t repent (what hell is like):

Psalm 37:8-10 King James Version (KJV)

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

Secondly, do not avenge ourselves for God will be our avenger.  There is nothing we can do on Earth that will exceed the anger and vengeance of God:

Romans 12:19 King James Version (KJV)

19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Hebrews 10:31 King James Version (KJV)

31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.


Now, pray this prayer:

Dear Father, I take everyone who has hurt me into my hands and give them completely over to you Lord.  You will be my avenger and I will cease from anger because they do not know what they did to me.  I pray that you please send your Holy Spirit to soften their hearts so they can see truth and that their eternal souls might be saved.  Even as I forgive their trespasses against me, Lord, please forgive my trespasses against your word.  In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.


Ask God to show you who else you need to forgive:
1) Ask God to show you who you need to forgive.  Pray: “Dear Father, in Jesus name, please show me who I need to forgive.”

2) Ask God to show you all the things that person did.  Pray: “Dear Father, in Jesus name please show me all the things this person did that hurt me.”

3) Forgive what they did and ask God to heal you.  Pray: “Dear Father, I forgive what they did to me. In Jesus name, please wash the wound away with the blood of Jesus and heal me. Thank-you for healing me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Keep asking God if there’s anyone else you need to forgive.


Once we’ve forgiven everyone then God can release us from our trespasses against him for none of us are perfect and we have all sinned.  You are now ready to break curses and expel spirits from yourself.

One lustful thought or one hateful thought means we have already broken the law:

James 2:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
