Heavenly Father, the book of Proverbs tells me, Lord, that if I churn milk, I'll get butter. If I hit someone in the nose, it will bleed, and if I stir up anger I will get into trouble. Help me to walk away from arguments, and when I fail to do so, give me wisdom, patience, courage and love to deal with the consequences. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
