Prayer for Matthew 5:39

“But I tell you, don't resist an evildoer. On the contrary, if anyone slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.”

Praying through Matthew 5:39

Heavenly Father, help me to become more and more like the Lord Jesus Christ, in thought, word, and deed. Help me not to repay evil with evil or insult with insult. Help me not to resist an evildoer or retaliate when I am abused or slighted for His name's sake. I pray that in the power of the indwelling Spirit, to seek after that which is good, and be ready and willing to turn the other cheek. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
