Restoring relationships

Re: '...if you stand praying and there remember you have something against your brother, first go and be restored to your brother, then come and offer your prayer'

How to 'go':

- go praying
- aim for face to face, sooner or later
- plan your words and anticipate reactions
- choose the right time for them
- believe the best about the other person unless facts prove otherwise
- use gracious tone and body language
- be quick to listen
- own what's yours to own
- be assertive without attacking - use "I" messages
- bring hope through the gospel
- breathe grace
