Dear God, Thank you for being orderly and powerful and loving and understanding! I need your help. You know there are difficult people in this world. There always have been and always will be. Some people can be avoided. Some people I must see and deal with, so I need to know what to do. When they are so wrong and their sin and stupidity affects other people’s lives, but they do not want help nor do they listen to reason and good sense or even Christian counsel from others who have ‘been there,’ there really isn’t much I can do. So what I need to do is ask you to please intervene. Please help me to not react and do or say anything wrong. Please open the other person’s eyes, enlighten their mind, and speak to their heart. Draw that person (or those people) to you. Fill them with spiritual wisdom, increase their knowledge and maturity, and break down the strongholds that keep them from doing what is right and following your will. Please help. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.
