Please check 2nd sentence. I didn't want to use "conflict" twice.
When conflicts arise, we need God’s wisdom, coupled with prayer, to give us understanding and a new perspective, so we can deal with matters effectively. Praying for the person(s) in disharmony can change hearts, including our own.
1. Is "in disharmony" OK here? I used this instead of "conflict" so I would not duplicate words.
2. Is the "person(s)" OK here? I didn't use "people" because that would imply more than 1 person. It could be 1 or more people.
I think disharmony is a good choice, Susan. It’s actually milder than a conflict. But I think it fits better in context than other words the thesaurus provides such as battle or combat.
I would not use person(s). It just looks messy. I suspect that your readers can assume that if they should pray for one person they disagree with, then they should pray for two or more as well.
