GOD OF WORDS—
help me choose mine carefully
let my mouth speak truth
with firmness and clarity
with respect and insight
let my heart hold those
to whom I speak
so they feel my regard
and help my spirit recognize
the God in each person
as well as the God in me

Pray today’s prayer. Share your thoughts.
Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7, NRSV
