Marriage Prayer – To Use Our Words Wisely
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us to communicate, Lord. Not just to be heard but to hear, and in hearing to understand.
Help us to use our words wisely. Teach us what to say, when to say it, or perhaps when to say nothing at all. Remind us to offer encouragement often.
Teach us to be mindful, compassionate, and kind with our words. Help us to exercise patience when we don’t get our way. When and if we disagree, give us the strength to lay down our pride as we strive to be understanding and kind.
Give us the grace to start over, Lord. Forgiving all the ways we went wrong and the many times we chose “me” over “we.” May we extend that same grace to each other, as we’re growing together in love.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. – James 1:19-20, KJV
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. – James 1:19-20, NIV
