    If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

    To love others as Christ loved me is for me to forgive anyone that has wronged me before they have done anything to me. To have a forgiving spirit at all times .Hard to do but with Holy Spirit helping , it can be done. Jesus Christ forgave me before I was even born . Now that is Awesome !!!
