Prayers for Myers-Briggs Types

bad-dates-1024x576

In a recent message in our Bad Dates, Roommates & Soulmates series, I taught on “Reconcilable Differences: Dealing with Conflict in Marriage.” Understanding our differences can actually depend our oneness. We discussed the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator as a tool to help us understand personality differences. In response to those differences, a friend sent me some humorous prayers for the different Myers-Briggs Types:

ISTJ: Lord help me to relax about insignificant details beginning tomorrow at 11:41.23 am e.s.t.

ISTP: God help me to consider people’s feelings, even if most of them ARE hypersensitive.

ESTP: God help me to take responsibility for my own actions, even though they’re usually NOT my fault.

ESTJ: God, help me to not try to RUN everything. But, if You need some help, just ask.

ISFJ: Lord, help me to be more laid back and help me to do it EXACTLY right.

ISFP: Lord, help me to stand up for my rights (if you don’t mind my asking).

ESFJ: God give me patience, and I mean right NOW.
