Hope your'e doing well!
This time we're praying about… GOSSIP!
So What's wrong with gossip you ask? Well, it ruins crowds, it ruins someone's reputation. Oh boy. (If you don't know what gossip is, there is a helpful article on gossip. Of course this may defer for all, but what I feel is powerful in this article is when the author says that we can look at gossiping as a form of planting seeds and how we reap what we sow. Isn't that incredible! (well..not incredible incredible, but you know what I mean. It's quite powerful and makes us, hopefully, think twice before we gossip) ;-)
Now, I hear someone already say, "But...We are human right?" Yes, you're right. We are. But still, let's be careful when we talk about other people, especially if we don't have all the facts. So what do we do you ask? PRAY. and then PRAY some more. That's what we can do. It's tough to resist running to friend or spouse, but PRAY first before you do that so you can save some time of heartache.
God loves His children and He doesn't want us talking about them in a bad light. He shows us certain things so we can PRAY for them. If we see person X doing something, PRAY instead of trying to find the next gossip group to tell this news to discuss it. It's not beneficial and it's hurtful. So what if other's do it too? You won't because you're different remember? You're His Child… ;)
Reminder about the prayer list: You can download the PDF list below. Again, I encourage you to take this to God, be led in prayer, ask Him what He is saying to you during this. You can also use the Bible verses to format the prayer as well, or just to meditate on.
Happy Prayers Fam!! Here's to better lives! ;-) Until next time my loves!
