More Than Words

Posted by Todd Naevestad on with 1 Comments

We're getting ready for worship on Sunday! View worship bulletins >>

Our words are often our greatest weapon. They can build people up or tear them down. We can speak life into others or burden them even more. Without even thinking, we can hurt those around us. This week, Pastor Katie Fowler will be speaking on making Jesus Lord of My Voice. Do we think about how our words can bring honor to God? Do we ask Him to be in control during important meetings and discussions? Read through this week's prayer of confession and reflect on the areas of your life and speech where God can be Lord.

"Merciful God, in Your gracious presence we confess our sin and the sin of this world. Although Christ is among us as our peace, we are a people divided against ourselves as we cling to the values of a broken world. The fears and jealousies that we harbor set neighbor against neighbor and nation against nation. We abuse Your good gifts of imagination and freedom, of intellect and reason, and have turned them into bonds of oppression. Lord, have mercy upon us; heal and forgive us. Set us free to serve You in the world as agents of Your reconciling love in Jesus Christ."
