Father, we honor your great Name. Thank You for another day to live and move and have our being in You. Help us to be like-minded, sympathetic, to love one another, be compassionate and humble. May we not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, let us repay evil with blessing, because to this we were called so that we may inherit a blessing. May we revere Christ as Lord in our hearts. Let us always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks to give the reason for the hope that we have. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
1 Peter 3:8-15 New International Version
