Honour Each Other

Dear Jesus,

Sometimes I struggle to navigate wisely through relationships. Friendships, associateships, love relationships, familial relationships you name it.

Lord I need your advice and guidance every day.

I have a special prayer for a special kind of relationship. The love relationship between a man and and a woman.

Lord you have so much to say about this kind of relationship. Special principles that tell us how to communicate with our significant others and how to manage our strong emotions.

You said that we are to honour each other and talk softly to each other. Love each other, never forgetting to treat each other how we would like to be treated.

This is not very easy with so many differences at play.

Encourage us to keep learning and striving to love.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Intimate Relationships

Dear Jesus,

When I comes to intimate relationships I know you only want the very best for us.

You want us all to be happy and enjoy fullfilling relationships and not ones that only undermine and hold us back.

Lord help me to understand what is right in a relationship, what is acceptable and what is for good.

Lord I know how hurtful some actions can be to you and my relationship with you.

So help us to determine what is right especially at this crucial time.

In your Name,

Amen

Come closer to me

Dear Jesus,

You gave me clear instructions to make an effort to get close to you. To come near to you.

I am far away from you right now and I am struggling to get closer to you.

But Lord although it is really difficult you also promised that as I make those steps to know you, to talk to you and reach out to you, you will come closer to me.

Wow! Thank you Lord for this. 

In your Name,

Amen

To Be Connected to Others

Dear Jesus,

You loved connecting with people when you were here.

You spent moments each day investing your time into building close relationships with people.

You shared things with people, you helped people, you confided in others and others confided in you.

How blessed you are to have had so many meaningful relationships, to be rejected and to still want to be connected to others.

Thank you for this example you have given us.

In your Name,

Amen

Open minds to your care

Dear Jesus,

I am thanking you today and I am certain of what I am thanking you for.

I want to let you know now that your love is seen, its felt and its very much appreciated.

You love us so dearly. I am certain that nothing will change that, not even me.

Help us all to have open minds to your care.

To be aware of what you do for us everyday and to do the same things for others.

Im looking forward to church tomorrow. To just be around people who love you.

There is safety there because you are there. The true shepherd.

In your Name,

Amen
