I've seen verses 1 & 2 lived out in the life of a dear lady that I knew when I was growing up. For years she faithfully attended church and faithfully prayed for her husband. It was years before he came to confess Jesus as Savior and Lord. But it happened.
The verses that jumped out to me were:
8 Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude. 9 Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it. 10 For the Scriptures say,“If you want to enjoy life
and see many happy days,
keep your tongue from speaking evil
and your lips from telling lies.
11 Turn away from evil and do good.
Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
12 The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right,
and his ears are open to their prayers.
But the Lord turns his face
against those who do evil.”
Especially the part "...pay them back with a blessing."
