Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Gentleness Prayer

The Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness.. (Galatians 5:22-23a)

The word gentleness is translated from the Greek word Πραοτης which can also be translated meekness or mildness.. the word communicates:
  • an indulgence toward the weak and erring, 
  • patient suffering of injuries without feeling a spirit of revenge, 
  • an even balance of all tempers and passions, 
  • the entire opposite to anger.
I am not sure how to pray this word.. it is such a powerful one.  I will simply pray this - come Holy Spirit and rain down gentleness on us.. help us to be gentle when we interact with people.. change us and manifest Yourself through us in gentleness.
