Dear God, I pray that today I may be quick to praise You in all I say and do, and slow to criticise. I pray that I may be quick to encourage others rather than complain.
I pray that I may be slow to get angry or discouraged, and may I have a heart that is quick to forgive and not criticise or condemn. And God, I pray that I may also be generous in my giving and not selfish with the things that are mine.
Grant me today to be a real encouragement to all I meet, and help me to keep my tongue from any foolish words which might hurt or discourage. Thank You for the life that You have given me today. I pray that I bring honour to Your name today. In Jesus' name,
