A prayer for words
Dearest Lord, there will be many words spoken today: words of affirmation, encouragement and hope; words of despair and loneliness; words of hatred and spite. Heal our brokenness and restore your word in us: words that are compassionate and kind, gentle and long-suffering, wise and loving. Bless my words today, Lord, that they may reflect your love which both strengthens and challenges us as those who seek to follow you. It is in your name I pray. Amen.
