Daily Prayer for August 20th, 2020
Good Friday morning—thank you! 🙂
Please help me to be kind to everyone, forgiving them, just as Christ forgave me. You/Jesus commanded us to love one another. By this, all people will know that I am your disciple, showing “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law.” That’s not asking much. Thank you, Father! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others.
32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 By this, all people will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.”
17 But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? 18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things, there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
