Pray and Stay Away

There are some people who may not like you. These may even be relatives, people whom you seem to irritate simply by being in the same room.

As you pray for and reach out to them in kindness and love, sometimes it might be advisable to limit your time with them and to simply “pray and stay away.”

This is the same principle as confronting some difficult situations with family, friends, or coworkers. As you graciously confront anger, laziness, give advice, or even a gently rebuke that is not accepted, then it might be best to simply step back, trust God, but continuing to pray for God to handle the matter for His glory. We simply “pray and stay away.”
