WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for Saturday August 24, By Marty Martel.
I ask you to prayer for the daughter of my friend Eddie Bryan. She is suffering from cancer and needs our prayer lines to ask our Blessed Savior to watch over her and touch her with his healing mercy, through this difficult time.
Prayer to Love Others Today
Oh holy Christ, who has commanded us to love others as ourselves,
It is a challenge to follow this commandment;
Many times every day I judge another, or grow angry, or look down upon someone.
Or, I am simply selfish. I try to brag subtly,
So that others will glorify me without me seeming conceited.
I buy shiny new things I do not need just so that other people will be impressed.
Sometimes, I pretend to love others, when inside I know my words are a lie.
My prayer is that you will help me to burn your love on my heart,
So that I may know the peace of loving my fellow man.
Let me be sincere in choosing good over evil.
Let me seek my glory in you, Lord Christ, instead of in my own image,
My own fame or status; for status is no more than vanity,
That will disappear in the blink of an eye.
Soften my heart so that I feel true sympathy, and so I value others just as I do myself.
May your Holy Spirit, who is with me, guide me in everything I think and do,
This day and always.
If you have anyone you would like to send a prayer out to please mail them to
