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

Getting Along with Each Other

If you've got it in you, get along with everybody. [Romans 12:18 MSG]

Work at getting along with each other and with God. [Hebrews 12:14 MSG]

These words sounds like something my parents used to say to me and my siblings. Sadly we humans do such a horrible job. A conversation about civility is beginning as we deal with the aftermath of the recent events in Tuscon. I think that civility and 'getting along' begins with prayer.

Heavenly Father we need you!
Help us to return to you.
Cause us to love each other.

Jesus have mercy on us.
Help us to accept your mercy.
Cause us to be merciful to each other.

Holy Spirit comfort us.
Help us to receive your comfort.
Cause us to comfort others.

Lord give us the wisdom of love.
Help us to follow the wisdom of love.
Cause us to lead others in the wisdom of love.
