Dear Lord, too often I am quick to speak and slow to hear. The power struggle edges out your calm patient responses and replaces my desire to enfold myself and others in the kind, patient and gentle love of your presence. I often find myself spinning around in negative judgments towards myself and others. Enter into my mind and shine the light of your peace into the crevices of darkness that harbor the serpents of slander, judgment and quarreling. Your grace is my salvation and saves me again and again from ungodly expressions that result from my need to be right, liked and understood which expresses itself in blaming, shaming and criticizing behavior. Nothing thrives in this state of war. Grant me the grace to step away from the power struggle that too often sabotages the relationships I care most about. More of you God and less of me. It is for freedom you have set me free help me to stand firm and not allow myself to be burdened by the yoke of slavery to the power struggle.
