A Prayer For Love


Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine, I wish You all a pleasant and peaceful Sunday and a great week ahead.

This week I would like to draw to your attention those who are seeking a partner but are failing. This must be stressful and it is easy for some people to tie themselves in knots, especially now there are websites which advertise partners and sex has become a commodity.

Singleness can be a long, lonely, and confusing road, especially when it’s unwanted.

Below is a passage for these poor folks. Please dwell on it. That they may find happiness and enjoy life more fully.

To keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:7–10)
