To Communicate With Compassion and Grace – Today’s Marriage Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father,
It’s easy to be misunderstood. It’s natural to get frustrated when we’re angry and hurt. What isn’t so easy is taking a humble approach when we’re angry.
Help us to communicate with compassion and grace. Instead of losing our cool, or stewing in anger, teach us to step back and choose our words well before stepping forward again.
Grant us the patience to listen to each other, as we try to understand each other’s heart.
Pride tells us to make self-centered decisions, while Your word tells us to bear with one another and to forgive each other as You forgive us.
Lord, we ask that You give us the strength to resist our pride, to let go of our right to be right, and to speak with compassion and grace.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
Bible Verse of the Day
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. – Colossians 3:12-15, KJV
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. – Colossians 3:12-15, NIV

Busy Books Bible Study for Kids
If you’re looking for a great Bible study for kids, readers are raving about Busy Books Bible Studies for Kids. Here are just a few of their comments:
Underpriced for the Quality (5 Stars)
This book is adorable! I was surprised by the thickness. So many lessons, coloring pages, and fun puzzles. The graphics are well done and the lessons are informative. It’s a good guide for walking younger children through the Bible. However, it’s a great quiet time lesson for older children to do on their own! I’m very impressed and look forward to more this author puts out! (Linda Trahern, Amazon Review)
Much Better Than Expected (5 Stars)
My grandchildren are going to devour this Bible study. The stories are written for easy understanding and scriptural as well. Exciting puzzles and questions to get them digging excitedly in their bibles. Much better than I expected. When is book 2 coming out? (Gary Rajata, Amazon Review)
