“Clarification: The bible is clear about whatever we choose to plant in our lives. When we chose to plant hurts, habits, and hangups, we will grow these things but if we choose to plant the fruits of the Spirit in our lives then we will grow beautiful gardens that we will share and spread life to all those in our lives. Read Matthew 7:16-17.”

“Father, sometimes we hurt others and sometimes others hurt us. And we may bury these hurt feelings deep inside trying to hide or ignore these feelings. We don’t want these hurts to grow into habits in our lives that are unhealthy. We know you see our hurts in our hearts. Thank you for hearing our prayers about these hurts, and help us to place them in your hands to heal us.”

“Father, we are sometimes afraid. We know you promise to always be with us, but we still get scared. Please hear our fears and bring us comfort.”

“Father, you say that the truth will set us free to live in joy with you eternally. Sometimes we are not honest with ourselves or others, we lie, we wear masks, and try to hide our true self. Please hear our honest prayer about things we have been dishonest about and forgive us. Thank you, heavenly Father, for hearing our prayers and for loving us so much, much more than we can fully understand. In Jesus Name. Amen.”
