Gracious Father, sometimes I act like I am more deserving than other people, and when things don’t go my way, I end up being very jealous. Other times I become obsessed with thoughts of wanting to become like someone else, and this leaves me insecure. Forgive me, dear Lord, and help me to become a better person. Let the blood of your son Jesus cleanse me from the effects of jealousy and may you fill me with peace, love and joy. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
