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

What it means to Forgive others

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for your forgiveness, for reaching out and reconciling with us all the time.

Keep showing us what it looks like and what it means to forgive others.

You said that you will not forgive us if we do not forgive people who have done us wrong.

I accept that as much as I have shown and extended forgiveness you have done the same for me. So help me to forgive much.

When we feel the urge to call somebody out from their actions. Stop us and teach us what is right to say and how to say it.

Most of all help us to discern and understand the consequences of our own words and actions.

In your Name,

Amen
