When children are little, we tell them to use their words to express their feelings. We do that because it’s important to speak up and be heard. Sometimes, those childhood lessons ring true even as we grow older.
Lord, help us find the courage to speak up
when we feel it is needed.
Inspire us to use our words to lift others up
or to counter injustices that we see.
Remind us that words matter
and have the power to change minds and hearts.
Speak up when you feel strongly about something. Don’t stay silent. Use your words.
