A Prayer

Lord God, You have called me to live like You, but sin and selfishness get in the way. Help me take my concentration off the things of this world and focus on You, Jesus. Assist me daily, Holy Spirit, in spreading Your forgiveness and love to those around me so that together we may experience Your peace. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

A Prayer

Lord, help me to be a formidable force,
One who will act for thee.
One who fights the way you fought
With compassionate words, gracious and free.

Lord, help me to be a patient person,
One who will endure with ease.
One who awaits tender times
With helpful, persevering peace.

Lord, help me to be a wise woman,
One who knows you and reveres.
One who studies and prays Your Word
With quiet lips and open ears.

Lord, help me to be a forgiving friend,
One who ceases to blame.
One who tries to forget the wrong
Of trials that can bring shame.

Lord, help me to be a loving lady,
One who brings good cheer.
One who will share the sunshine
With those that are and aren’t dear.

Lord, help me to better personify you,
With wisdom, patience, and grace.
Loving and forgiving with all your strength
Until we come face to face!

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7 (NIV)

“Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you. Job 22:21 (NIV)

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 (NIV)

But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Matthew 6:15 (NIV)

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. Matthew 5:43-48 (NIV) also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:5 (NIV)

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him. Colossians 2:6 (NIV)

Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did. 1 John 2:6 (NIV)
