Give Me Words of Grace

Thinking a lot about the power of language this week. Here’s my prayer for the week:

In arrogant blindness,
I fail to see that
what does not offend me
may still be offensive
to those around me.

Our words are keys,
with the power to
both lock and unlock.
They can open doors
to future conversations
or close them forever.
They can be vehicles of grace
or weapons of hate and destruction.

Help me choose grace.

Amen
