Praying For The Man You Love | Day 2: Words

Oh Father,

Our words have power, just as Your Word has power. We have the ability to either speak life or to speak death into each others’ lives, and you warn us to not let anything unwholesome come out of our mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up, according to their needs, and that it may benefit all who hear.

I pray today for the words of this man I love, that you would give him the caution to think before he speaks. May his words please You, may they be a constant stream of hope, of truth, and of encouragement. Let him be known as a man whose words hold value, so that when You speak through him, ears will be inclined to listen. and hearts will be willing to receive.

Help him to staunch the careless words of complaint or negativity, to rid them from his heart so that they will not touch his lips. Let the nature of his words be rejoicing and praise, good counsel and comfort, kindness and thoughtfulness. And I thank you that he is mindful of what he says!

Lord, help me with my own words– that I will speak what is fitting, and that what comes from my mouth will uplift and honor him. May I speak the truth in love!

As the Proverbs address our words, let them guide us in our speech… for a man finds joy in giving an apt reply- and how good is a timely word! …A wise man’s heart guides his mouth, and his lips promote instruction. Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. 

Lord, bless his mouth, that it may bless You.

In Jesus’ precious Name, amen.
