Calling a Spade a Spade
Lord, may my words be like medicine on a wound.... Help me not to skirt issues, and guard me against being fearful of offending people with wrong attitudes and deceptive behavior. Help me instead to be to the point, forgiving and gentle, but absolutely intolerant of the prideful or deceitful ways of the enemy. Give me the courage to speak truth. Forgive me when in times past I have cared more about what people think than what You think. Forgive me when my words have wounded and cut. Thank you for Your grace, mercy and love.
