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.‚ÄĚ¬†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.‚ÄĚ¬†21¬†Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Luke 6:27-36¬†English Standard Version (ESV)
Love Your Enemies
27¬†‚ÄúBut 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¬†‚ÄúIf 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,
