Maria Smith's picture

Christians are called to pray always. Sometimes this is not an easy thing to do, especially when we are busy with work, chores, children, etc. This section makes use of different state of people's lives.

This area can include prayers for ministers, fathers, mothers, law enforcers, doctors. When children start the school year, pray for them and their year ahead, pray for the unemployed, travelers, the elderly.

It is also a area to pray if you are in a bad mood or frame of mind, are moving or praying before a trip, praying when in doubt of something or for discernment.

Prayer in time of jealousy

Lord Jesus Christ,

I am caught in a web of jealousy that stays with me night and day. Help me to put away from me this evil which Your Word tell us rots bones (Prov 14:30) and even shortens lives. (Sir 30:24)

Bring home to me the further eveils to which it leads if left unchecked: slander, calumny, hatred, damaged relations, persecutions, and worse things.

Le me dwell constantly on the motives for loving others rather than being jealous of them. Remind me of the fleeting character of all life's attachments and successes and of the fact that our true happiness lies in being united closely with You and with all others in You. Amen.

Yours in Christ,
Maria 玛丽亚
