Marriage Prayer – Teach Us to Speak Kindly
Dear Heavenly Father,
Teach us to speak kindly to each other, or to not speak at all. Give us the strength to lay down our pride, and the virtue to exercise patience.
May we listen far more than we speak, and seek to understand each other more than we do.
Help us to choose our words wisely so that we might build up and encourage each other, instead of tearing each other down.
We can’t take back unkind words that were spoken, but we can choose to speak kindly today.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. – Proverbs 15:1-2, KJV
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly. – Proverbs 15:1-2, NIV
