Prayer Request: For me to be a better Christian
Hey Ameerah. I am writing to you to thank you for the space that you have given me on your website for my testimony.
I would also like to ask you to pray for me for two things. I hope this is ok to ask.
One is I find it very hard to be good with those who give me a hard time. I know that Jesus has said that when someone slaps you on one cheek you need to offer the other. I find it very hard to do that. I always want to give back more bad stuff than I received but when I do that I feel so bad I feel like tearing my heart out. Please help me.
Another thing is that I went to a school where most of the students were Muslim. My best friend in junior college was also a Muslim. Right from the time I was young i have been told by many of them that my Christian faith was made up and that my Bible has been corrupted by us Christians & that we Christians are following a bunch of lies.
I used to really hate this and it is for this reason that I have a secret hatred in my heart for Muslims. This is another thing I hate about my self. I know if I want to care for people I must learn to love them & I want to witness for Jesus more than anything in the world. I want to bear fruit for him like a mustard seed, which even though small grows into a big tree and produces fruit thousand fold.
Can you please help me with these two severe issues as they are consuming me.
