Did I just heard him say…?!
Every time I hear him say negative comments about others, I respectfully ignore.
Every time I hear him loudly say, ‘shut up’, and claim to have all of the answers, I respectfully follow his cue.
Every time I hear him make unreasonable demands, I respectfully listen then share a fresh perspective.
Every time I am crossed-examined, I respectfully answer.
Every time I notice confusion, I respectfully slow down the rhythm of speech.
Every time I hear a condescending remark, I respectfully ignore.
Every time I transition to a new task, I forgive past offense.
Help me let go and forget both subtle and obvious hostile acts, Lord.
Capture his attention, soften the heart, and protect his life.
He needs a Savior!
Help me extend grace for every one of his offenses.
I will not tolerate abuse. I will be a Light to the lost world before I walk away.
I’m wonderfully and fearfully made by our Creator and no one changes His Truth.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen
