Necessary wisdom and courage

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. (Romans 12:17-18 NIV)

никому не воздавайте злом за зло, но пекитесь о добром перед всеми человеками. Если возможно с вашей стороны, будьте в мире со всеми людьми. (Римлянам 12:17-18 Russian)

Almighty God, our dear Father in heaven ~ thank you, precious Lord, for leading us by your strong hand through many troublesome times. Bless Christians in every nation with the necessary wisdom and courage to live peaceably with our brothers and sisters in Christ as well as our enemies, friends, neighbors and relatives. Silence my speech when I’m inclined to utter venomous words in retaliation to the words or deeds of other people. Let the love of Christ shine in all my activities. Forgive me for any harsh and unkind words that have spewed from my heart and out of my mouth. Help me to be more like Jesus in every way possible In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
