Daily Scripture Prayers of Intercession: Part 8

May I not repay anyone evil for evil, but seek to do what is right in the sight of all men.  (Romans 12:17)

If it is possible, as far as it depends on me, let me live at peace with all men.  (Romans 12:18)

May I submit myself to the governing authorities.  For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist have been established by God.  Consequently, he who resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.  (Romans 13:1-2)

May I give to all what they are due: taxes to whom taxes are due, custom to whom custom, respect to whom respect, honor to whom honor.  (Romans 13:7)

May I owe nothing to anyone except to love them, for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.  For the commandments, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not covet," and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."  Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.  (Romans 13:8-10)

May I accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on his opinions.  Who am I to judge another’s servant?  To his own master he stands or falls, and he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.  (Romans 14:1, 4)

May I not judge my brother or regard him with contempt.  Instead of judging him, may I resolve not to put a stumbling block or obstacle in my brother’s way.  (Romans 14:10a, 13)

May I pursue the things that lead to peace and to mutual edification.  (Romans 14:19)

We who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those who are not strong, and not to please ourselves.  Each of us should please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.  (Romans 15:1-2)

May I accept others, just as Christ accepted me to the glory of God.  (Romans 15:7)
