Daily Prayer for Oct 2nd, 2019         

Good morning, God‚ÄĒthank You! ūüôā

Holy Spirit, help me to be genuine and affectionate to everyone, holding on to what is good; pray for those who abuse me, and love those who hate me. Give me wisdom and patience to live peaceably with all. Let me keep on loving, and giving; never expecting anything in return. In Jesus’s name. Amen.

Romans 12:9-21 English Standard Version (ESV)

Marks of the True Christian

9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

14¬†Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.¬†15¬†Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.¬†16¬†Live in harmony with one another.¬†Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.¬†17¬†Repay no one evil for evil, but¬†give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.¬†18¬†If possible, so far as it depends on you,¬†live peaceably with all.¬†19¬†Beloved,¬†never avenge yourselves, but leave it¬†to the wrath of God, for it is written,¬†‚ÄúVengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.‚Ä̬†20¬†To the contrary,¬†‚Äúif your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.‚Ä̬†21¬†Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Luke 6:27-36 English Standard Version (ESV)

Love Your Enemies

27 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. 29 To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. 31 And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.

32 “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. 35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. 36 Be merciful,
