 31 Days of Prayer ~in His Word 1-30-2024

It is easy to pray for someone who is nice, when you hear they are sick or hurting you just want to pray for them. God’s Word tells us that we need to also, and maybe especially pray for those who persecute us! That means people who are “out to get us” These are the people who are mean or rude to us. The people who cut us off on the freeway honk and yell at us when we were driving right! Pray for them, do not get caught up in anger or frustration. I speak to myself here too!  

“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’[q] and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies![r] Pray for those who persecute you!  In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. Matthew 5:34-35

Heavenly father, I lift up the person who cut me off today, I pray that you would bless them with a delightful day at work, that the things that caused them to drive rudely would be stilled and they would have peace in You, in Jesus’ name…
