Oh Lord, I pray that we will all gain the ability to discern things better before we put our foot in our mouths wrongfully. So many people are suffering, and it is sad that some people assume that it must be because of sin in their life. What I know is that trials come to all people, at various times in our lives. Some times it is harder, where there is job loss, financial issues, a death in the family, sickness, and other things that strike us down. We can be seeking Your hand and then all of a sudden have the world falls down upon us, as it seems. It seems out of our control, and we just come to You in prayer for direction, peace, and comfort. We also hope that other people would not judge us wrongfully because of what is happening. Instead, we pray that people will be more supportive of our needs. That people will remember us in their prayers and want to visit us, in order to comfort us. These are our wishes Lord, and only a few people are willing to do this. So little people call and visit people regularly, in order to check in on them. Therefore, people go on in life finding their comfort from You alone and the people who live with them. Lord, please tare down the pride in people’s hearts. Help them realize that people need their help without judgment cast down upon them. If people could simply gain a selfless heart where Your love would flow from their bodies onto others, then lives would really change for the better. Even the anxiety people are feeling on a day to day basis would find relief. We are Your instruments of peace, oh Lord, not of dissension. We deliver love, not discord. Help us to be this way towards people at church that we haven’t seen for a while, and visit them. Also, to our friends we haven’t heard from for a while, and, of course, our family. I love You, Lord. Thank You for helping me love people as You love them. Amen.
