Welcome friend. This month I am diving into 1 Corinthians 1:13:4-8. I have divided it up into four blogs digging deeper into what love is and isn’t. Click on the link to the video below for Part 1. Praying for Patience and Kindness. (The link will take you to the new Living Joy Today Facebook Page!)
For Patience Pray These Verses:
The end of something is better than its beginning. Patience is better than pride.
(Ecclesiastes 7:8) Heavenly Father, I know that you have a great plan and the end of what I am going through is better than the beginning. Give me patience over pride today to wait for the plans you have in store for me.
“A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.” (Proverbs 15:18) God, give me the patience to pause when angered so not to stir up conflict, for your word tells me that the one who is patient calms the quarrel. Amen.
“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways when they carry out their wicked schemes.” (Psalm 37:7) Heavenly Father still me today, for your word tells me to wait patiently and to not fret anyone or anything.
When You Need A Little Kindness Pray These Verses:
“A kindhearted woman gains honor, but ruthless men gain only wealth. Those who are kind benefit themselves, but the cruel bring ruin on themselves.” (Proverbs 11:16-17) Dear God, grant in me a kind heart today. Fill me with humility that I may be kind to all those I come in contact today to honor you Father. For it is for your glory and praise, Amen.
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:32) Heavenly Father fill me today with kindness and compassion. I am needing to forgive_________________ for __________________. Give me the wisdom, kindness and compassion to forgive as you continually forgive me.
