Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

The gift of understanding

on December 8, 2012

I wanted to share a prayer for the gift of understanding. We may feel frustrated, confused, sad, and misunderstood about things in our life, but God tells us to have understanding, patience, and love. To have understanding and acceptance of life events, other people, our jobs, ourselves, etc.

Lord Jesus Christ, grant me the gift of understanding. Help me to understand the feelings of others, the desires of others, the goals of others. At the same time, help me to understand myself in my actions and reactions. Widen my vision beyond my own small world to embrace with knowledge and love the worlds of others.

Help me, Lord, to always see you at work in my own life and in the lives of others. Bless me with insight, acceptance and love that is tempered by you who are all things to all men. 

Help me to understand, Lord. Amen.
