Today’s Prayer (08/29/2018)

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, help us to watch our tongues and strive not to say things that hurt other people. To those people that we have already offended, bring those things we’ve said to our minds that we may come to them and mend every wrong. I pray that forgiveness is felt, in the person’s life that is sorry. May their sincerity of their actions speak volumes of the person they are now for You, Jesus. Help people see the change in their lives and forgive them as You are so gracious to forgive us. May our thoughts be purified in Your blood. Help us stay focused on what is pure and holy. We only want to do Your will, so please help us love one another. Shine down Your love, that we may truly say and act as You have us do. May Your presence change us and conform us to live to Your standards. That the Word of the Bible may be imprinted in our hearts. I know that Your Words are powerful and it does have the power to move me to do Your will, above all things. I trust in You, Jesus. I praise You, Lord. I love You. Amen.

Gossip Is Hurtful And Causes Strife

I speak of gossip and hurtful things that people say, because although it may make the person saying such things feel good, it damages other people to the core.

Proverbs 26:20-22

Proverbs 26:20-22 (KJV)
20 Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife.
22 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

Proverbs 26:28

Proverbs 26:28 (KJV)
28 A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.
