Prayer Challenge Day 12: David and Absalom – getting over self-hatred and failure

All of us struggle with their own failure. Unless we’re truly crazy!

David had a huge moral failure when he killed one of his own soldiers and took his wife. When his own son Amnon had a similar failing, David did nothing. It seems as if he had not gotten over his own failure enough to discipline his son.

Our calling is fraught with many failures on the way to success. Do you see anyways that your friends past failures may inhibit them serving now? Is guilt or shame still hanging over them? Pray for them today in any issues you might know of; be open to sharing your journey of failure with them, and asking about theirs.
