“A Prayer For Wholesome Talk”

September 5, 2017

Praying man Father, the old saying “sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me” could not be further from the truth. The words we speak and the body language we use can either build people up or tear them down. That’s why we must not let unwholesome talk come out of our mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Help us to be kind and compassionate, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, You chose to forgive us. Help us to be careful in not carrying a chip on our shoulder, or look for fault in others. We want to be careful to give the benefit of the doubt. We want to live a life of love just as You loved us. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.

See Ephesians 4:29, 32
