Today’s Prayer (02/13/2022)

Oh Lord, I love You and Your ways so much that disgracing You with my words and deeds is something that would kill me inside to do. Therefore, cussing is out of the question, but more importantly not taking Your Name in vain. Thank You for giving me wisdom on this matter and for keeping my faith alive although I work with people who swear like sailors. Only You are able to help me keep my cool and not lash out at them when they say such mean things and also profane You with their mouths. So help me Lord, that I might know what to say to them. I don’t want people to lash out at me for telling them what they are doing is wrong. All I ask is that You help me find words to say that will also bring peace, while not losing trust in my colleagues. I know that I chose this job after a year and a half at my last job. I was blessed to not be in the company of people that took Your name in vain then, but unfortunately, this is not the case now. I cannot just keep ignoring them, and only You can help me know when to say something and also what to say in that moment. I believe in You. I love You, Lord. Amen.

God has spoken. Do not take His Name in vain. If you have or do, repent and get right with the Lord while you still have time.
