MALACHI 2:7 (MSG)
It’s the job of priests to teach the truth. People are supposed to look to them for guidance. The priest is the messenger of God-of-the-Angel-Armies.
1 PETER 3:15 (CEV)
Honor Christ and let him be the Lord of your life. Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope.
Words matter so make sure that yours are truthful and winsome.
What percentage of the words that you use each day are a blessing to others?
God of hope, my heart is glad when I hear your word and know your love. Thank you for gifting us with language and giving us words of peace for all people. Forgive me when I use words to harm rather than bless. Make me deligent in sharing the truth of your hope. Amen. (Daily Texts, Ground Up Grace edition)
Our Father in Heaven,
we hold your name in the highest regard.
Please come and establish your reign here on earth
so that everything that happens here will align
with what is happening in heaven.
and we’ll forgive those who have wronged us.
Shield us from the trials and temptations that come our way.
Lastly, we pray that you would protect us from all forms of evil. Amen!
