Prayers for a Whole Life : Day 32

a prayer of confession, and a prayer for wisdom


forgive me, God,
for these most frequent sins:
     running my mouth when I should keep quiet
     and
     being silent when I should speak up

give me discernment to know
when to listen and when to speak out

give me courage
to let silence linger
and
courage
to let my voice be heard

in the silence
and
in the words of my mouth
be present

may they both be
acceptable in your sight,
O Lord,
my Rock and my Redeemer
