#583 - I'm Having In-Law Problems
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, I am having difficulty with my in-laws. I don't like their personality. They aren't nice people. They have strange traditions I have never been comfortable with. They are intrusive into my marriage and into my life. They have dysfunction in the family. They expect things of me that I can't deliver. I cannot be the man or woman they want me to be for their child. I don't like the way they handle our children. However, I am committed to my spouse till death do us part. That means my in-laws are going to be a part of my family. Father, there is only one answer to this. I must love my spouse's family because they are my spouse's family. This is an opportunity to practice unconditional love. I need to love them because You created them. I need to love them because they need someone who loves You to love them. They need someone to model the fruits of the Spirit. They need to see how deeply I love my spouse. Father, I need to be willing to serve them - with a smile on my face and warmth in my heart. You gave me these in-laws to test my resolve to honor You with all my heart, soul, and mind. Father, enable me to show them what unconditional love is like. Amen.
