STOP WITH THE FLATTERY!

Daily Prayer for April 13th, 2019      

Good Saturday morning, God‚ÄĒthank You! ūüôā

Help me to love my neighbor as myself, pleasing him for his good; building him up in You! Never, shall I utter lies of flattery as a ploy for greed‚ÄĒYou are my witness. Another man might praise me, but let me not with my mouth; a stranger, but not with my lips. Not me but, You, are believably unbelievable, and my soul knows it very well. In Jesus‚Äô name. Amen.
