1 Timothy 2:1-4 GNT First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, requests, and thanksgivings be offered to God for all people; for kings and all others who are in authority, that we may live a quiet and peaceful life with all reverence toward God and with proper conduct. This is good and it pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to come to know the truth.
Matthew 5:43-45 GNT “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your friends, hate your enemies.’ But now I tell you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may become the children of your Father in heaven. For he makes his sun to shine on bad and good people alike, and gives rain to those who do good and to those who do evil.
Today I read a prayer written by Jennifer O. White that I want to share with you. (click this link for the full post) It is a prayer you can pray for the toxic people in your life. I have filled the blanks with "Donald Trump and those that support him" You can fill the blanks with the names of the toxic people in your life. I believe that if and when we pray for the toxic people in our lives we turn our focus to where it should be and that is on a loving faithful God who will never leave or forsake us.
Deuteronomy 31:6 GNT Be determined and confident. Do not be afraid of them. Your God, the Lord himself, will be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.”
A Prayer for the Toxic People in Your Life
By Jennifer O. White
Holy God. You are full of mercy and compassion, slow to anger and full of love.
You love imperfect people extravagantly. Father, I may be blind to my own role in toxic relationships. Help me see the truth about myself. Apply the healing power of Your Word to my heart and mind. Deliver me from any stronghold that causes me to harm people with my words and actions. Save me from self-destructive patterns.
I struggle in my relationship with Donald Trump and those that support him. I need You to give me wisdom on how to love them well. You are my shield and defender. Show me how, when and where to erect boundaries in our relationship. I believe You are my healer and I trust You to guard my heart and mind.
Help me to love Donald Trump and those that support him courageously. Fill me with Your truth and compel me to fearlessly tell the truth with love. Let Your perfect love cast out all of my fears related to our relationship.
I surrender what I think our relationship should be. Please transform it so that it honors You.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
