Relationships



Dear Lord God, we are broken people living in a broken world. Sin breaks and destroys relationships, especially our relationship with You. We fail to put You first. We turn to others for our strength and affirmation and comfort. And then we’re disappointed and devastated when they let us down. Father, please come near __ and encourage __ right now. Help __ to trust in You with all of __ heart, believing that your plans for __ are good. Please bring about peace in this relationship. Give them both forgiving hearts, ready to love each other they way that you love us. Direct their motives, their conversation, and their actions so that this relationship can be restored, according to your perfect wisdom and love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus...
(Philippians 2:1-5)
