What a week! I prayed a prayer a long time ago for God to teach me to love the unlovable. I think He liked that prayer. Since then, He has brought many people into our lives that have tested us to the core. They have taught us to act toward and not react. He has taught us to never stop praying. I pray often for God to show me what He sees when He looks at the person. He never lets me down. I am embarrassed to say how many times I fall short, but He reminds me of that prayer, and I repent and start again.
Lord, help us with the difficult people in our lives. Help us to be grateful for the ones you bring us. Help us to see them like You do and help us to show them what You are like. Help them to feel Your love and let them know there is always a place for them in your family. In addition, Lord, we ask that you bless those you put in leadership at Faith and help us to be a blessing to them. In Jesus name, Amen.
