A Prayer For Difficult People

St. Moses and St. Aaron Miniature
It must have been wearisome for Moses and Aaron to keep up with and have patience with the Israelites as they made their way out of Egypt and into Sinai.  The Bible makes it pretty clear that even from the early days, leading them came with much complaining and strife.  But, Moses really strove to keep the faith, and obeyed God by commanding Aaron and his sons to bless the Israelites with the following words ...

The LORD bless you and keep you!
The LORD let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you!
The LORD look upon you kindly and give you peace!
- Numbers 6:24-26

The next time you find someone getting under your skin, complaining about you, or being inconsiderate towards you, try saying this prayer for him/her.  Maybe it will help them and help give you some peace, understanding, and/or acceptance.
