Praying with Paul: 'Differences'

Wednesday, June 28, 2023

Galatians 2:11-21

Dear Father, peacemaker among brethren,

When good people within your church find themselves differing on issues, may we take comfort in knowing that even Peter and Paul had their differences.

Help us, like them, follow a path of integrity, confronting each other in a spirit of love. Help us, like them, be willing to admit when we are wrong.

We are human; we need your help, guidance, and grace to overcome our lack of goodness and good judgment.

Instill within our hearts the truth that through the works of law no one will be justified, but rather through our faith in Jesus Christ.

In the name of Christ I pray. Amen.
