Prayer For Feb. 12th

February 12, 2019

Hello Friends! Here’s the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

Our world has become a place where there are no filters. Many people don’t think before they speak and they do things without a moments hesitation…they don’t think of the consequences of their words or actions…they don’t consider any viewpoint or feelings other than their own. We see so many people hide behind computers and devices and say things they would never say to someone’s face. People bully and hurt with their words. They intimidate and hate with their actions. There is no room for civil discourse or intelligent discussions about differing points of view. There is no grace or room for people to grow and learn from past mistakes. There is no forgiveness or mercy in the public forum. A transgression made in a person’s youth can count against them as if it happened yesterday…even if they learned and grew past their mistakes. We know our enemy accuses us night and day and we see his attitude and accusations spilling over into our world in ways we have not seen in our lifetime.
 
Lord, help us to be different. Help us to act like Jesus. Help us to show mercy, kindness and forgiveness. Help us to overcome evil with good. While others spew hate and anger, may we be known by our love…your love. Help us to see people through your eyes…help us to be patient and stay calm when others speak harshly…help us to forgive easily and pray for those who persecute us…when we see someone being hateful or rude, remind us to stop and pray for them that their eyes might be opened and their heart softened…help us to remember who our real enemy is.
 
There are battles all around us, but help us not to lose sight of the greater war that is being fought…the war for your kingdom, salvation and eternity. Please grant us your wisdom and discernment. You tell us not to be caught up in foolish controversies and arguments. Remind us not to waste time trying to convince someone who is unwilling to listen or change…help us to remember the best thing we can do is lift them in prayer to you…You are The One who can make blind eyes see and soften the hearts of men. Help us so the problems of others don’t become our own. Help us to root out all anger and bitterness and let go of the things that are out of our control.
 
We give you our disappointments, our frustrations, our difficult relationships, the things that weigh heavy on our hearts and minds. We pray for our families and friends, our communities, our nations and the world. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Help us to be peacemakers that point the way to you. We ask these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Blessings be upon you friends!

In His love,
Debbie
