But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. - James 3:17

Dear Jesus, I know that I must have serious communication and even conflict with people on some occasions.  It seems inevitable that in order to uphold the truth I will collide with people.  But I want to reflect the gentleness and respect that come from love when I must stand up for the truth or stand down someone who is wrong.  I want to disagree with dignity and speak with a merciful tone.  Please give me your supernatural ability to build bridges when I must enter conflict instead of burning them down.  AMEN

"The Christ within us wins people not arguments."
