Morning Prayer – When People Say Insensitive Things


When People Say Insensitive Things

Heavenly Father, why do people say unkind things? I’ve been hurt by their words and insensitivity. Help me not to be offended, angry, or bitter because of what is said. Instead, help me to forgive. Help me hold my tongue so I won’t lash out. Strengthen me in love so when I encounter insensitive words again I will not repay insult with insult but with blessing. Help others hear themselves and help me hear You.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
