Oh Lord, I pray that people will stop judging one another and defaming their good name. So many people attack different people in the faith when they know nothing about their deep and intimate relationship with You, God. This is very disheartening and I pray that if people have concerns about someone that they will come to the person themselves and not spread lies. And if people come to the person who they think is in sin or has said false things, then have them come to them with love and respect, not with any anger. Surely, a spirit of animosity is never going to help anyone come to know You, God, even if they are wrong. Lord, help people know that we cannot be the ones convicting people of sin, but only Your Holy Spirit. Therefore, we must be led by You and not ourselves. Otherwise, we may be jumping the gun and saying and doing something that we will soon regret. Lord, I have many people who think I am a false prophet and a false teacher, which is hurtful. They say that what I teach is wrong according to their own beliefs. Therefore, people have spread lies about me to other people and then come at me with anger and disdain. Lord, help these people know my true heart for You. May they know that I love You with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength. Everything I do in life is for You. You are my Redeemer and the Lord God of my life. I wish people would want to talk to me about my faith instead of attacking me. Now I know how Job was feeling when He was being persecuted by his friends and other people. Lord, may Your will be done in my life. I need Your understanding from the Bible and prayer. Teach me Your ways and don’t let my views change because of people’s own views on things. I love You, God. I give You praise and glory. Amen.
