To Speak Life To Each Other – Today’s
Dear Heavenly Father,
When one is hurting, we both hurt. On difficult days, during our deepest times of trouble, we want nothing more than to be a comfort for each other, but sometimes the challenge comes in knowing what to say and how to say it.
Teach us to keep silent long enough to listen. Help us to focus, to let go of distractions, and to be present in the moment.
Help us to identify with each other’s feelings, and to see things from another point of view, so that we can carry our burdens together.
Give us the right words to say, or the wisdom to say nothing at all. May we be understanding, empathetic, and kind. Just because we may not have the right words, it doesn’t mean that we can’t be an encouragement and comfort.
We don’t have to have all of the answers, but we want to encourage, and we want to speak life to each other. Please give us the wisdom to do that.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
Today’s Bible Verse
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. – 2 Corinthians 1:3-5, KJV
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. – 2 Corinthians 1:3-5, NIV

Our Featured Book
This delightful and inspiring journal takes you on an exploration through the book of Hebrews. Insight, encouragement, and thought-provoking questions motivate you to dig deeper into scripture and hold fast to your faith. The words “better,” “greater,” and “more” appear frequently throughout Hebrews as the author sets out to show the reader that Christ is better than the angels, higher than the priests, and greater than any Old Testament prophet. The new covenant through the blood of Jesus Christ is superior in every way to that under the Levitical law. This literary masterpiece encourages us to grow, to press on in the face of affliction, and to grab hold of the gospel which we have been taught. From front to back, it explains who Christ is, what He’s done, and why He’s the only way to salvation.
