Daily Prayer from James 3:17-18

Real wisdom, God's wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. I pray that ________ will be characterized by being gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. Help her (him) develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with you, God, and enjoy its results by doing the hard work of getting along with others, treating others with dignity and honor. James 3:17-18

Daily Prayer from James 3:13-16

I pray that ________ will want to be counted as wise, desiring to build a reputation for wisdom. Here's what she (he) needs your help with, Lord: to live well, live wisely, live humbly. Help her (him) live by this truth: It's the way she (he) lives, not the way she (he) talks, that counts. Mean-spirited ambition isn't wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn't wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn't wisdom. It's the furthest thing from wisdom—it's animal cunning, devilish conniving. Whenever you're trying to look better than others or get the better of others, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others' throats. James 3:13-16

Daily Prayer from Romans 13:8-10

Lord, instill this value in ________ heart: To not run up debts, except for the huge debt of love she (he) owes others. When she (he) loves others, she (he) completes what the law has been after all along. The law code—don't sleep with another person's spouse, don't take someone's life, don't take what isn't yours, don't always be wanting what you don't have, and any other "don't" you can think of—finally adds up to this: Love other people as well as you do yourself. ________ can't go wrong when she (he) loves others. When you add up everything in the law code, the sum total is love. Romans 13:8-10
