The Ultimate Love Language

Something amazing happens to our hearts when we pray for another person, like your friends, spouse, family members or even enemies. The hardness melts. We become able to get beyond the hurts, and forgive the offender. We even end up loving the person we are praying for. It's miraculous! It happens because when we pray we enter into the presence of God and He fills us with His Spirit of love. I used to pray to somebody that had done great wrong to me, and the result was, I started to love the person with the love of Jesus in my heart, and the hurt that used to be there had just evaporated away. It is because when you pray for the person, the love of God will grow in our heart for that person.
.
I've experienced a lot of times that praying before confrontation relieved the tension; peace, understanding and thoughtfulness took place. That's because prayer is the ultimate love language. It communicates in ways we can't. Talking to God about somebody is an act of love. Prayer gives rise to love, love begets more prayer, which in turn rise to more love.
.
Are you in need of some reconciliation or confrontation without having to worry that tension, arguments and disagreement may arise? Praying, as the ultimate love language, can make that happen.
.
"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins." (Mark 11:24-25 NIV)
