Let me not be led into temptation to repay evil with evil, but to overcome evil with good. In interactions with my enemies, let my words and actions be seasoned with Your grace and truth.

Let Your peace, which transcends all understanding, govern my heart and my interactions. Where there is conflict, bring Your healing and unifying Spirit.

Help me to rest in the assurance that You see all things and You will vindicate and protect Your children in Your perfect timing.

I choose to walk in obedience and faithfulness, leaving all judgment to You. May my life be a living witness to Your grace, mercy, and righteousness, even in the midst of conflict and opposition.
