Lord God,
When I can pray

For someone who has hurt
Or damaged me,

Without a single reservation
From my shadow self,

Then I know for sure
That I’ve forgiven them, at last.

Your will be done

Your will be done (Matthew 6:10; NIV).

Our lives are in his hands (Psalm 66:9; NLT).

Wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

Never stop praying (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NLT).

Lord God,

Sometimes I wish so much
I could be well again,

For life is passing me by
Day after day.

It seems so pointless, Lord,
Yet may your will be done;

So I rest in your hands,
And wait, and pray.

Inner peace

I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give (John 14:27; NLT).

Each day, I pray for those
Who’ve hurt or damaged me,
Forgiving them afresh;

And I’ll do this, Lord,
Until the hurt is healed,
And all the damage overcome,

For then
I will have inner peace,
At last.

God within,
Free from sin,
May I pray
Throughout today.

God without,
Free from doubt,
May I rejoice
And lift my voice.

God so near,
Free from fear,
May I thank you
And love you, too.

God beside,
Free from pride,
May I serve you
In all I do.

Peace

I am tired of living among people who hate peace (Psalm 120:6; NLT).

Is this the way you repay the Lord, you foolish and senseless people? (Deuteronomy 32:6; NLT).

Native-born Israelites and foreigners are equal before the Lord (Numbers 15:15; NLT).

You are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28; NLT).

…………………………………………………………………………

 

I pray for peace
Throughout this foolish world,

For all are equal, Lord,
And all are one

With you, our Maker,
And with one another;

So when we hate our fellows,
We hate you, Lord,

And when we hate you, Lord,
We hate ourselves.

Prayer

Consequences

If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone (Matthew 18:15; NRSV).

So then, putting away all falsehood, let all of us speak the truth to our neighbours, for we are members of one another. Be angry but do not sin (Ephesians 4:25-6).

Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us (Luke 11:4; NLT).

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

……………………………………………………………………………..

 

Lord God,
When someone hurts me,
I talk to them about it privately.

If they don’t apologise,
Or even acknowledge
The harm they’ve done,
I can forgive them,
And I can pray for them –

But I can’t relate to them
As if the damage they did
To our relationship
Has been resolved.

Prayer

I live for you

Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them” (John 14:23; NLT).

There is one Lord […] who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).

…………………………………………………………………………

 

Lord God,
I live for you,
And you for me.

Lord God,
I dwell in you,
And you in me.

Lord God,
I pray through you,
And you through me.

Lord God,
I rest in you,
And you in me.

Lord God,
I serve through you,
And you through me.

Lord God,
I’m one with you,
And you with me.
