  • B J of CHAFES Ministries for verse 3
    Heavenly Father, I have a great concern that my personality is not Christ and hard to control, when the Bible claims that man can do all things through Christ that encourages him, that noting is to hard for God, and all though we must reap what we have sown, if we truly repent God takes our shortcommings, and faults that are sin which smell in His nose and cast them into the sea to be remmbered no more, that we might be at peace with all men as much as possible. Lord bless me to be at peace with all men as much as possible ever time You allow some temtation to remind me that the best of what I have is of dirt, because I am nothing without Christ, so I need the victory over sin daily. Lord please give me the victory over loud taking and rudenss that is droving people away from me as single all though so times You have to stand alone,amen!
