Psalm 19:14 / Matthew 12:36 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. / I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak.
Lord, we confess that we long for wholeness, but we mediate on brokenness. We are addicted to controversy. We get excited over online fights. We preach about reconciliation, but we post about division. We speak and write carelessly. Our speech builds a wall of division rather than a bridge to reconciliation. We tear the world down with our words. Lord, purify our hearts so that we may think and sound more like you, that we may seek liturgies of love and reconciliation, rather than anger and fear.
Song: Clean Heart by David Bailey and Kim Williams
