15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6 (NKJV)

38 "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. 41 And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away. 43 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:38-48 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help me change how I interact with others. Show me how to deal with rejection and differences. Lord, as we face the hard road ahead of us, guide our steps so that we go forward with love for those who would persecute us.

22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Raca!' shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, 'You fool!' shall be in danger of hell fire. Matthew 5:22 (NKJV)
     Jesus, as I look at the current political discourse on all sides I realize that we are a nation in danger of hell fire.

23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Matthew 5:23-24 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us rush to forgive those who have offended us.

9 For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last, as men condemned to death; for we have been made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men. 10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored! 1 Corinthians 4:9-10 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me be a fool for Christ.

20 For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power. 1 Corinthians 4:20 (NKJV)

     Lord, don't let me overlook doing the small things you ask of me.

1 I cried out to God with my voice-- To God with my voice; And He gave ear to me. 2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord; My hand was stretched out in the night without ceasing; My soul refused to be comforted. 3 I remembered God, and was troubled; I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Psalm 77:1-3 (NKJV)
     Thank you, LORD, for coming to me when I was grieved.

7 Then he said to the multitudes that came out to be baptized by him, "Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. Luke 3:7-8 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help us bear fruit worthy of repentance and claim nothing except what Jesus has done for us by his death andd resurrection.

10 So the people asked him, saying, "What shall we do then?" 11 He answered and said to them, "He who has two tunics, let him give to him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise." Luke 3:10-11 (NKJV)
     Jesus, help us willing give of ourselves to those in need.

16 John answered, saying to all, "I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Luke 3:16 (NKJV)
     Jesus, baptize us afresh with your Holy Spirit and with fire.

17 His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather the wheat into His barn; but the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire." Luke 3:17 (NKJV)

10 Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, "Ananias."

Acts 9:10-11 (NKJV)
     Jesus, please help us go where you send us, even to our enemies.

17 And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, "Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit." Acts 9:17 (NKJV)
     Lord, "Brother Saul" are tow of the most amazing words in the Scriptures.

11 "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Matthew 5:11 (NKJV)
     Jesus, I pray that I will have done something that's worthy of persecution for your sake.

12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:12 (NKJV)

14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 (NKJV)
     Father, let the light of Christ shine forth in my life.

16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (NKJV)
     Lord Jesus, cleanse this temple of my body with your Holy Spirit.

18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their own craftiness"; 20 and again, "The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile." 1 Corinthians 3:18-20 (NKJV)
     Father, set me free from the folly of the world's wisdom.

15 And the angel of the LORD said to Elijah, "Go down with him; do not be afraid of him." So he arose and went down with him to the king. 2 Kings 1:15 (NKJV)
     Holy Spirit, help me go forward at your word, fearing nothing.

1 Truly God is good to Israel, To such as are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled; My steps had nearly slipped. 3 For I was envious of the boastful, When I saw the prosperity of the wicked. Psalm 73:1-3 (NKJV)
     Jesus, set me free of envy of the wicked. Purify my desires.
