Daily Hope & a Prayer – May 27

Summing up: Be agreeable, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. That goes for all of you, no exceptions. No retaliation. No sharp-tongued sarcasm. Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing.

Whoever wants to embrace life

   and see the day fill up with good,

Here’s what you do:

   Say nothing evil or hurtful;

Snub evil and cultivate good;

   run after peace for all you’re worth.

God looks on all this with approval,

   listening and responding well to what he’s asked;

But he turns his back

   on those who do evil things.

1 Peter 3:12The Message (MSG)

Dear Father,

Thank you for your wisdom shared through your Word and your Spirit. Lord, touch my heart. Deliver me from everything that is not like you. Help me to demonstrate Christ-likeness in everything that I do. Touch my tongue. Give me an agreeable spirit. Help me to be sympathetic to the needs of others. Teach me to love like Christ. Deliver me of a vindictive spirit. Help me to see when I am being sarcastic or participating in back-biting.

Lord, change me into a peace-maker. Help me to live a life of obedience and love. Teach me to resist evil.

Father, please turn your face toward me in favor and mercy.

In Jesus name I pray this. I love you.
