    Default MBTI prayers

    A lot of you have probably seen these prayers before:

    ISTJ: Lord, help me to relax about insignificant details beginning tomorrow at 11:41.23 a.m. EST.

    ISTP: Lord, help me to consider other people's feelings, even if most of them ARE hypersensitive.

    ESTP: Lord, help me to take responsibility for my own actions, even though problems are usually NOT my fault.

    ESTJ: Lord, 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 do it EXACTLY right.

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

    ESFP: Lord, help me to take things more seriously, especially parties and dancing.

    ESFJ: Lord, give me patience, and I mean RIGHT NOW.

    INFJ: Lord, help me not be a perfectionist. (Did I spell that correctly?)

    INFP: Lord, help me to finish everything I sta-

    ENFP: Lord, help me to keep my mind on one th- Look a bird! -ing at a time.

    ENFJ: Lord, help me to do only what I can, trusting you for all the rest. But would you mind putting that in writing?

    INTJ: Lord, keep me open to others' ideas, WRONG though they may be.

    INTP: Lord, help me be less independent, just let me do it my way.

    ENTP: Lord, help me follow established procedures today. On second thought, I'll settle for a few minutes.

    ENTJ: Lord, help me slow downandnotrushthroughwhatIdo.
    What do you think of them - do they nail you and the people you know best?

    I love the INTJ one and also believe the ST (all of them), ISFP, ESFP, ENFP, and ENTP ones are spot-on. I'm unsure or undecided about the rest.

    Can someone please explain the ENFJ one for me? Do ENFJs have trust issues?

    Hmmm...I guess I can identify with: INTJ, INTP, INFJ, INFP, and ISFP.

    The INFP one is pretty good. I would suggest this ESFP alternative, based on my ESFP mother:

    "Lord, help me to stop making myself the topic of every conversation."

    Identify with - as in relate to personally? I think the idea is to nail each type's biggest problem area, not necessarily a unique one. Based on that I have to say that the INTJ one does nail me best, even though like you I can also nod to some of the others.

    The INTP and ISTP ones nail me pretty well, haha. Most seem pretty accurate, though I'm not sure about the INFJ one.

    Haha, my ISTJs, ESTJs, ESFJs, INTJs and INTPs are really like this!

    I think the ISFJ and INFJ prayers don't really hit the nail on the head.

    There's disagreement in the household about the ISFJ one; It seems to be felt by some that it does fit.

    LOL!

    Well, I'm often closed to other people's ideas, and I like to be independent.

    I'm also a perfectionist, and I also have trouble finishing things I started -- especially if it's not interesting.

    I also have trouble sticking up for myself simply because I'm kind of shy.
