Brief about the prayer for good conversations: Brief about the prayer for good conversations: The Bible gives great importance to speaking with grace, speaking words carefully. Here are powerful life-giving words, verses from the Bible. Use these prayers to transform how you speak.
Our words, our conversations are great opportunities for us to express our love for God and love for the people around us.
We are to praise God. Sometimes we sing praises to Him. The Book of Psalms reminds us of this often. As we praise God, don’t we speak to God and speak about His goodness? Words are used to pray to God. Prayers also include conversational prayers.
Often our words are shaped within our hearts. Hence prayer to guard our hearts is an important component here.
The word of the Lord “created” in the past and “creates” in the present day. We are created in God’s image. As we pray, we walk in the very same grace of creation. Our words can comfort a person, encourage others, be the reason for joy.
Speaking good and wholesome words are great steps to bring heaven in our surroundings.
What we hear influences what we speak. Our proximity to people also influences our words – for good and for evil. So keeping away from evil people influences the words we speak.
