Praying from 1 Peter 3:9 relating to Forgiveness, Blessing, Non-Retaliation.
Dear God, please help me to resist the temptation to retaliate when someone wrongs me or insults me. Instead, may I choose to bless them and show them kindness, knowing that this is what you have called me to do. Help me to remember that by doing so, I will inherit a blessing from you. Thank you for your guidance and love. Amen.
Verse: not rendering evil for evil or insult for insult; but instead blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.
1 Peter 3:9
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to not retaliate with evil or insult, but instead bless others, knowing that they were called to do so in order to inherit a blessing.
