Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. (Ephesians 4:29 NKJV)
Holy Spirit, Please equip me with words of kindness… gentle thoughts… an attitude of thanksgiving… a mindset of mercy… and life lived in grace. And when hard conversations are necessary, please give me an extra measure of wisdom and compassion. In all things, help me to speak with dignity that demonstrates that I have been redeemed and set apart — that I am in the world, but not of it. Please help me always communicate — both in word and action — in a way that honors You and represents Jesus well. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
