Word of Life, advise me. My thoughts can spark words that cause harm; I know that was not Your intention. Instead, may I speak life-giving words. Help me to proclaim Your liberty to fear-bound captives. I want the wounded to find shelter in my conversations with them.
Thank you for those along life’s journey who have spoken kindly to me. Who have uttered words fit and wise. They have shared Your love and counsel. They have generously affirmed the gifts You placed within me that I had not recognized. I want to do that for others. Regenerate my vocabulary; permeate it with vitality. Amen.
Like golden apples in silver settings are words spoken at the proper time. Proverbs 25:11
