God who sent us the Word, made into flesh,
the One who was himself wounded by words,
and wounded others with his own well-chosen barbs,
today we pray for the words that will fill the day.
May we receive words of hope to bolster us, words of peace to connects us,
words of truth to anchor us in reality.
May the words that we speak to others be full of compassion, inspiration, and more truth.
And may we find rest from all other words
in the presence of your Word With Us. Amen.
