Philippians 4:4-7

Dear Father, forbearing God,

Let me rejoice in the Lord always! Again I ask this from you: Let me rejoice always!

Let me be gentle, open to reason, slow to make negative judgments.

Let this forbearing spirit be apparent to everyone.

I know the Lord Jesus is near, so I have no reason to be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let me present my requests to you.

I believe in you, Father, a God who transcends all human understanding.

I believe that the peace which comes from you, which transcends all understanding, will keep my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus.

In the name of the ever-near Jesus. Amen.
