"We like to think of ourselves as people without enemies. But in fact, we lose sight of those we've wronged and we avoid the ones we fear. When pressed we have argued our case and defended our turf. We've only created more hostility, and You have not been pleased. Train us in Your ways. Reform our attitudes. Sweeten our spirits. Forgive us where we have sinned. And let forgiveness flow. We want to be pleasing to You, and not merely polite with people. If you are pleased with our dealings with others, heaven's peace cannot be far behind (p. 54)."
This one sure hits a lot of areas, doesn't it? Praying "from the inside-out" is painful for many people -- but then many people aren't very interested in personal transformation, I guess. Lord, help us.
