Father Lord, I am struggling with jealousy. I keep feeling bad when I see my friends who are not committed to your word experiencing breakthroughs in their lives while I keep struggling. I do not want to be like this because your word says that those who are jealous are still worldly. Uproot jealousy from my heart that I may stop acting like a mere human. Help me to behave like a child of God that is born of the spirit. Please teach me how to be appreciative of others even when it is hard. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
