Fruit

We pray for love.  We pray for joy.  We pray for peace.  We pray for patience.

We pray for goodness.  We pray for kindness. We pray for faithfulness.

We pray for gentleness.

We pray for self-control.

 

Really?  That’s your fruit?  Those things would be the result of people knowing you?  I never would have guessed.  Not knowing me….

We pray for love.  We pray for joy.  We pray for peace.  We pray for patience.

We pray for goodness.  We pray for kindness.  We pray for faithfulness.

We pray for gentleness.

We pray for self-control.

Show us where these things show up.  In our selves and in others.  Help us to see it.  We need some encouragement these days.  We need to know all is not lost when we open the news.  We need to know all is not lost when our own thoughts run rampant with anger and frustration and hatred.  Or even just when we are tired and catty and judgemental and unforgiving.  We need to know we are not lost.

 

We pray for love.  We pray for joy.  We pray for peace. We pray for patience.

We pray for goodness.  We pray for kindness.  We pray for faithfulness.

We pray for gentleness.

We pray for self-control.
