Day 5--Examine Relationships

Day 5 OCTOBER 2, 2012

prayer for personal revival

Scripture for Reflection and Preparation

Ephesians 4:25-27 “25 Since you put away lying, Speak the truth, each one to his neighbor, because we are members of one another. 26 Be angry and do not sin. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and don’t give the Devil an opportunity.”

John 13:34-35 “34 ‘i give you a new commandment: that you love one another. Just as i have loved you, you should also love one another. 35
By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.’”

Colossians 3:12-15 “12 Therefore, god’s chosen ones, holy and loved, put on heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, 13 accepting one another and forgiving one another if anyone has a complaint against another. Just as the lord has forgiven you, so also you must forgive. 14 above all, put on love—the perfect bond of unity. 15 and let the peace of the Messiah, to which you
were also called in one body, control your hearts. Be thankful.”

Examine Relationships

Christians must seek to restore healthy relationships.


• Praise God for who He is

• Confess your sinfulness and need for cleansing

• Allow His Spirit to draw you near

• Listen as He speaks to you

Ask God to...

• Show you if you have any broken relationships in your life

• Help you know if you have contributed to broken relationships

• Help you determine to do all you can to mend broken relationships

• Help those you have hurt to forgive you

• Restore your fellowship with them

• Give you the courage to seek to restore fellowship

• Help you protect God’s design for marriage


• Thank God for hearing you

• Trust that God is at work to accomplish His will
