The Way Ministries...John 14:6
Prayer for how to respond when we or our loved ones have been wrongfully hurt.
Weekly prayer of October 9, 2005.
At The Way Ministries…John 14:6 everything is done in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Our Father and our God in heaven. Hallowed be Your name. We thank You LORD for this day and for knowing that we are four weeks closer to the ministry’s 16 th anniversary, and four weeks away from the 1 st anniversary of the Internet ministry. It seems like only yesterday that the ministry was launched. We acknowledge and thank You LORD as the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2) through Christ Jesus.
All year we have been praying for unity and peace. We realize that seeking unity and peace is not easy. Equally challenging is not seeking vengeance after we or our loved ones have been wrongfully hurt. Even though we know that vengeance and recompense are yours, we still have difficulty letting go and letting You be God. In the name of Jesus will you show us why it is so difficult for us to abstain from vengeance and how we can truly let go and let You be God in our lives?
As I waited on the LORD’s response, He led me to Genesis 50:15-21. This is the passage that discussed the fears and concerns of Joseph’s brothers after the death of their father. As you know in response to their fears Joseph said to his brothers: “Do not be afraid, for, am I in the place of God? But as for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good… I will provide for you and your little ones. And he comforted them and spoke kindly to them” (Genesis 50:19-21).
LORD we thank You for using Joseph to show us the importance of exercising faith in You when we or our loved ones have been wrongfully hurt by others. In situations like this, remind us LORD that Your place is not our place, and teach us to take a kind and gentle approach to the situation. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
To our visitors: Let this prayer be yours as you receive it and personally offer it to God, Amen. If you said and offered this prayer to God and you desire to know how to respond when you or your loved one has been wrongfully hurt, then submit yourself to God through Christ and to the teaching and guidance of His word.
