Lord, thank you for all of our relationships. Thank you for friendships, family and colleagues. I pray for them and ask you to bless them today.
I ask you for wisdom and a teachable spirit for us as individuals. Specifically, when we deal with people who may be different from us. I ask that you set peace in our hearts and minds; may we be peace seekers. May we establish healthy relationships; accepting and embracing others as they are. I ask you to help us see what is honorable, good, and praiseworthy in them. I pray you teach us to set boundaries, in order to avoid mental, physical or emotional exhaustion.
I ask for discernment to know who we should and should not be in relationship with. I pray we be deliberate in who takes part of our lives and align us with those people who are crucial players according to your will and purpose. I pray you bless our conversations and time together with grace, love and honor. I ask you to create unity and agreement within our relationships. May there always be mutual respect and growth. I ask you to heal the wounds of those we are in relationship with; may we be relationships which offer safety.
Thank you for the people we work with and those associates who we may not exactly engage consistently with. Thank you for the people in our lives. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
