Prayer for November 12th,  2023

Good morning, God —thank you!

Wisdom yields patience, especially when others act offensively toward us; therefore, I desire to overlook an offense and not rush to judge. Love takes no heed. However, that doesn’t mean a Christ follower should accept anything contrary to our beliefs. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Proverbs 18:19

19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.

Ecclesiastes 7:21-22

21 Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee:

22 For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.

Proverbs 19:11

11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
