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

Patience

Dear Jesus,

Please give me the strength to practise patience.

I really believe that patience is such a valuable virtue that can mean relationships and bridges will either be built or broken.

I am not a very patient person and I am not the best at putting others before myself.

Its even harder because no-one can see the battle that rages within us. 

Many of us find this area so challenging. Why Lord? Why is it so hard to practise patience?

Help us to recognise those times when we have practised patience, learn from that and continue in patience.

In your Name,

Amen

Our Lives are Good

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for opening up doors that I do not deserve.

My job, my home, my family, my friends, my work colleagues (say anything else in your life you are thankful for).

Opportunities, support and provision. Everything good in our lives has come from you.

Thank you that even when troubles have come our way, you have given us advice on how we can see good during these times.

Your word says that troubles are there to help us to demonstrate patience so that we can develop strong character, morals and virtue.

Even being alive is good. Our lives are good.

I’m giving thanks and praise right now because of that.

In your Name,

Amen
