May our words be Gospel words – words of love, words of encouragement, words of hope.

Lord, we read Zophar’s detailed description of “the wicked man’s portion from God, the heritage decreed for him by God” (Job 20:29). We wonder if Zophar has ever thought of asking the question:’ Help us, Lord, to learn from Zophar ‘Does all of this apply to Job? Is Job a wicked man? Is Job being punished by God? Help us, Lord, to learn from Zophar’s mistakes. Help us to listen to what You’re saying to us before we start telling other people what we think You should be saying to them. May our words be Gospel words – words of love, words of encouragement, words of hope. May our words bring glory to Your Name, the Name of love, the Name of Your salvation.

  1. It is hard to have words of encouragement for others, when we see the pain they are going through. We cannot justify the situation in our hearts, so it requires and intentional output of a life giving word. Many times, I need to pray about this, I want to build people up-keeping my personal thoughts away from the situations and staying bias is hard to do. I pray God grants me wisdom in all situations including my own. Great read! Thanks .

    1. Thanks for taking time to make such a thoughtful comment. May the Lord give you grace to speak words that will take account of people’s pain and will also point beyond their pain to the Him. God bless you and your witness for Him.

  2. Thanks, Yoshiko, Michael, Coach Muller, Lilka, Elias and Beauty Beyond Bones, for liking this prayer. God bless each of you.
