Prayer: Dealing with Difficult Persons

Prince of Peace, and Lord of Lords, there are days where we encounter people who seem to be truly difficult to deal with.

Whether it is at home, at work, at school, help us to decipher and understand them. Grant us Your Godly wisdom that we may uplift Your name, even before them.

Let us not judge and condemn but display the love of Christ to them. May we have the strength and courage to forgive those who may have wronged us, even as we have been forgiven.

Matthew 7:1-2

Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

Seeing the good in others

Help us to seek out, and witness of, the good that lies in each one. You gave us all beautiful traits, help them to be revealed to all we may come into contact with daily.

Give us peace and patience to deal with these seemly difficult persons with ease, with respect and with a smile, Oh Heavenly Father. We pray that those people also find Your peace. Give them that unspeakable joy in their lives.

1 Thessalonians 5:15  See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone. But always pursue what is good, both for yourselves and for all.

Titus 3:10-11 Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition, knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.

Forgiving others

Help us all to accept and forgive those who have failed to treat us with respect and dignity. Control our thoughts, our actions and the words we utter, so that we would not sin against You.

 Mark 11:25 And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.

Help us to not seek revenge in circumstances such as these, so we can be at peace with both You and those around us. In Jesus’ precious name we pray, Amen!!

Proverbs 22:24-25 Make no friendship with an angry man. And with a furious man do not go, lest you learn his ways and set a snare for your soul.

Romans 12:18 If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

  • Lord we pray,
    Sometimes the most difficult people
    Are the loved ones in our home
    Help us improve our relationship
    With a sense of love and compassion and understanding.

    Let the same attitude be
    Reflected to one we meet outside
    May judgement and strife not hinder us
    From sharing the peace of Christ.
    Amen!
