Prayer

Speaking out

Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth (Ephesians 6:14; NLT).

Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).


Lord,
There is a price to pay
For speaking out:

It’s stressful at the time,
And afterwards
I have to live
With fearing people’s
Anger and dislike.

But the price of staying silent
Is much worse:

Frustration and resentment,
Feeling impotent,
Anxiety, l
ow self-esteem,
And, worst of all,
Depression.
