The past is not beyond the reach of prayer

Prayer needn't be confined to a present or a future concern. Through prayer we can restore the right sense of any past situation. We can pour a balm of benediction on whatever has gone before.

At times we may feel it's more sensible to chalk up to experience some former wrong and go forward with increased wisdom. But thoughtful prayer can help us right the wrong—at least in changing our concept of what happened. This is where correction begins. Praying over some past mistake does more than dissolve hurt feelings or erase embarrassment. Often it can even correct the mistake.
