Prayer

Thoughts, words and deeds

For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts (Mark 7:21; NLT).

I am determined not to sin in what I say (Psalm 17:3; NLT).

They defiled themselves by their evil deeds (Psalm 106:39; NLT).


Lord,
I’m determined
Not to indulge
In unkind thoughts today.

Please help me
To think the best of everyone
Instead.

Lord,
I’m determined
Not to indulge
In angry words today.

Please help me
To speak with gentleness
Instead.

Lord,
I’m determined
Not to indulge
In heartless deeds today.

Please help me
To offer love to everyone
Instead.

For your Son’s sake,
Amen.
