Father, remind me today to approach my neighbors without judgement. “Therefore let us stop passing judgement on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister.”
Gracious Heavenly Father, we know You have called us to be disciples. Reveal to me those neighbors who need to know You. Teach us how to speak of the hope we have in Jesus; to speaking loving and gentle ways, with confidence and without boasting.
Open the eyes of my neighbors and let them see and know in their hearts that You have made a pathway for them. “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”
Help my neighbors realize that walking with You in their lives will bring them unending joy. “Direct me in the path of Your commands, for there I find delight.”
Lord, may my neighbors experience your perfect love. “Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect love.”
Lord, I pray for my neighbors that they will have the power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.
May my neighbors know You as the God who is always faithful. “He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them – He remains faithful forever.”
Fill me with Your love for my neighbors and create a way for them to experience that love today. “Love does not hard to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”
Jesus, help me to love my neighbors even as You have loved me. May my neighbors see Your love in my life. May they see this love and be drawn to You. “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
I pray that my neighbors discover the mystery of Christ and know that He is the hope of glory. “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
