Prayer For September 9, 2013

Dear God,

I was cold and did not control my anger yesterday. It is my duty to greet visitors with cheer and a kind heart, and I did not. I closed myself off and stewed in my anger. I didn't even show my face to the people who came to visit. I was rude and showed anger like a spoiled child. I ask for your forgiveness for being so hateful. I ask for your guidance in all social situations. I ask that you guide my heart and help me to open myself to visitors and show them the kindness you would show them if they visited your house.

I have remembered this verse today, "And do not forget kindness to strangers, for by this, some who, while they were unaware, were worthy to receive Angels." (Hebrews 13:2). I will meditate upon the meaning of these words and I will try hard to become more hospitable to friends and strangers alike. For as you have loved me, I shall love others.

Amen

why beat yourself for being human?

I'm not beating myself.

A beautiful confession and apology.
