Worship at Home This Week
by Rev. Annie Melick

Scripture:   Ephesians 4:29

29 Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building up, as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those who hear.                      

Ponder This:  At the beginning of each day this week, pray that God would give you power to control your speech. Find an opportunity each day to say something that would build someone up. Identify someone you would like to encourage this week. Write them a note, call them, or find some other way to encourage them. Examine yourself each evening this week and identify evil talk that came out of your mouth, and useful talk for building others up. Pray about this.


Prayer: Lord, give me the power to resist evil talk today. Help me to speak words that give grace to those who hear. Amen.
