Holy God, we come today asking that you help us remember that what we say matters. We want to be mindful of the speech that comes out of our mouths so that we will not hurt others with our words. We want to be known as Christians by our love. We pray that you will reveal to us ways we can convey peace and encouragement so that others may be blessed.
We stand on your word today, O God. We ask that you will help us to convey genuine love in our words and deeds. Help us to love one another with mutual affection. Help us to rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer – especially in these times of social distancing and the Coronavirus pandemic.
Help us to remember, O God, that we are all in this together. We pray that you will give us tolerance so that our speech is always gracious and seasoned with salt.
We thank you and praise you. In all things, you get the glory. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
