Bible verse for January 7 Prayer

When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s way,
    he causes their enemies to make peace with them. (Proverbs 16:7)

Questions to think about/pray through for your January 7 Prayer

  1. We are told often in the Bible that we are not to hate anyone (1 John 4:20, Proverbs 10:12, 1 John 3:15, Proverbs 6:16-19.) We are not to have enemies. Therefore, when the Bible says “enemies,” it is people that do not like us or have an issue with us, not the other way around. As Christians, we are to make peace with everyone. God is the only one that can control people making peace with us. Think of people in your life that you struggle with. What can you do to make sure you are living at peace with them? Also, what can you do to make sure that you don’t try to control how people feel about you?
  2. God is constantly striving for us to focus on the ways of his kingdom instead of earthly ways. This means when he takes pleasure in anyone’s way, it is a way that aligns with His. Think about your day yesterday. What are 1-2 changes you can make moving forward to align more with God’s will and way?

January 7 Prayer

Dear Lord, Help me pursue peace with all people (Hebrews 12:14.) Please guide me to always seek wisdom from above, and help it be “pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy” (James 3:17.) Allow me to not consume myself with what people think of me. I know if I walk your path and your way, that is all that matters. Amen.
