Focus Scripture: Psalm 15: 1, 3 Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill? He who does not backbite with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor does he take up a reproach against his friend.
Gracious Lord, help us to hold our tongues, treat our neighbors with kindness, and be loyal to our friends. Thank you for loving us in spite of our shortcomings. We pray for people in leadership positions, people who are nursing emotional wounds, and those who feel lost and alone. We pray for people in need of spiritual restoration. Have mercy on your people and your world, O God. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen
