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 for a loving attitude

Lord Jesus Christ,

You gave Your life out of love for all people and You encourage Your followers to do good for others. Over the years many Christians have found this difficult and I am no exception. I try, but it is so hard to have a loving attitude toward all - and then I feel hypocritical in claiming to follow You.

Help me, dear Lord, to really believe that Chiristian love is the greatest energy in the world. Let me see that this is not an emotion but a central attitude of one's being- an attitude of service for others in Your Name.

It is the result of Your grace, and prompts us to will only good things for others as images of God. Grant that I may always strive to attain this attitude and so live up to the noble vocation to which I am called. Amen.

Yours in Christ,
Maria 玛丽亚
