“A wicked messenger falls into trouble, but a trustworthy envoy brings healing.” Proverbs 13:17
Lord, I pray that You would allow my grandchild
to faithfully deliver Your words of encouragement to those around him/her.
Help him/her to see how speaking truth can heal a heavy heart and mind.
It is sobering to realize that not speaking truth can lead us into trouble,
and I pray that my grandchild will not have to experience that reality.
Application: Talk about the many ways we can bring healing to others−counseling, friendship, encouraging words− and how speaking the truth in love is always the best way to communicate.
This prayer suggestion is used by permission from “My Grandmother is. . . praying for me” by Kathryn March, Pamela Ferris, and Susan Kelton. They are three ordinary grandmothers desiring to pray for the next generation to become men and women of strong character and great faith. They have a verse from the Proverbs, a prayer for the verse and an application for each day of the year. I have found the book an excellent resource for praying from my grandchildren, especially for character development. You may order the book from their website: www.mygrandmotheris.com.
