Prayer Guide

Brothers and sisters, if a person is discovered in some sin, you who are spiritual restore such a person in a spirit of gentleness. Pay close attention to yourselves, so that you are not tempted too.

[Gal 6:1 NET]

The quality of mercy is not strained;

It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven

Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed;

It blesseth him that gives, and him that takes.

’Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes

The throned monarch better than his crown;

It is enthroned in the hearts of kings;

It is an attribute to God himself.

~ William Shakespeare ~

His gain is loss; for he that wrongs his friend

Wrongs himself more, and ever has about

A silent court and jury, and himself

The prisoner at the bar, ever condemned.

~ Alfred Tennyson ~

My Father,

Help me to avoid the critical spirit that leans toward injustice. Grant that none may be made despondent waiting for my mercy; but through forgiveness may I inspire confidence in those who have made mistakes, and influence them to a better life.

Amen.
