#681 - Help Me to Persuade Others
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, You have inspired me with a message I am to share with others. Father, there is only one way to persuade anyone to believe this message - I must build their trust in me. How do I do that? I must display the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Love. Joy. Peace. Goodness. Gentleness. Compassion. Generosity. Mercy. Self-control. Patience. Perseverance. I must display these fruits over an extended period for a skeptical culture. Father, if I don't have the luxury of time to display such traits, I will need recommendations and referrals from trusted people. If I don't have the recommendations of others, I must find a way to prove that my message is true; that people can see it with their eyes and hear it with their ears. Father, it is so essential that we live trustworthy lives. It's about character. It's about building relationships with trustworthy people. It's about proving what we believe in, especially by how we live our lives. Father, I confess my rebellion and surrender my life to You. I ask the Holy Spirit to transform my heart and mind, making me a man or woman other people can trust. Give me the message You want me to share and then those who hear it will listen, trusting the character of the messenger. The ability to persuade others begins with confession and surrender to You. Amen.
