Pray This Prayer
Heavenly Father, help me to be a peacemaker in the relationships that I have with others. I know that peace doesn’t just happen. Instead, Your people are called to cultivate and nurture peace in our relationships with one another. Help me to become more aware of areas in my life where peace needs to be created and give me the strength to make peace where there has been pain, bitterness, anger, and sorrow.
Your Word says that I should live at peace with everyone, as much as it is possible for me. I know that all things are possible through You, so help me to live a peaceful life with the friends and family members that You have blessed me with. Allow the Holy Spirit to show me areas in my life in which bitterness, rage, anger, brawling, slander, and malice have festered.
Help me to make the changes I need to make so I can live a harmonious life with the people who You have surrounded me with. In Christ’s name I ask these things, Amen.
Heavenly Father, thank You for every individual that You have placed in my life. I know each one of them are there to encourage me and to show me Your love. Additionally, I recognize that I am called to serve the same benefit to them.
Thank You for handpicking the people who surround me, support me, and love me. I know that every good gift in my life is the result of Your love for me, and I am grateful for the gifts of love, family, and friendship. Thank You for knowing exactly who and what I need in every season of my life. In Christ’s name, Amen.
