Psalm 79:11
11Let the groaning and sighing of the prisoner come before You [God]; according to the greatness of Your power and Your arm spare those who are appointed to die!

Psalm 102:19-20
19For He [God] looked down from the height of His sanctuary, from heaven did the Lord behold the earth, 20To hear the sighing and groaning of the prisoner, to loose those who are appointed to death.

Psalm 69:33
33For the Lord hears the poor and needy and despises not His prisoners (His miserable and wounded ones).

Psalm 146:7
7 [God] Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets free the prisoners,

Isaiah 42:7
7To open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, and those who sit in darkness from the prison.

Psalm 68:6
6God places the solitary in families and gives the desolate a home in which to dwell; He leads the prisoners out to prosperity; but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

While there are obvious ways that people are physically imprisoned, take a moment to think of the ways people can be mentally, emotionally, relationally, or spiritually imprisoned.

Psalm 102:20 speaks of prisoners who are appointed to death.

Take a minute to think of the type of death that occurs within human relationships.

Relational death is most often caused by unforgiveness.

God’s compassion and desire to rescue prisoners extends into the complexities of human relationships as well. The mention of “wounded” in Psalm 69:33 can mean emotionally wounded as well as physically wounded.

God first empowers His children ― and you are one of His children ― to forgive and, when they succeed, He leads them into vibrant life.

With the realization in your mind that your Father God desires to lead you, reread these Bible verses. Forgiveness within your relationships will free you, too, from interpersonal prisons and will lead you into relational prosperity.

2 Corinthians 1:4
4 [the Father of mercies and God of all comfort] Who comforts (consoles and encourages) us in every trouble (calamity and affliction), so that we may also be able to comfort (console and encourage) those who are in any kind of trouble or distress, with the comfort (consolation and encouragement) with which we ourselves are comforted (consoled and encouraged) by God.
