Help me to be an Encourager!

Heavenly Father I praise You for life and for bringing people into my life that have helped me to run my race. I praise You for the lessons I have learned and even for the trials I have had to face no matter how hard they brought me to my knees. I praise You for Your Holy Spirit walking, talking, and lifting me up daily. I praise You for the hope of an eternity where I will live with You and no longer see or fear death.  

Holy Spirit the author of wisdom wrote: “Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and health to the bones.” [Proverbs 16:24] Help me to give out pleasant and sincere words to others daily so that I can help give them strength and to be a source of Your eternal water so that they drink deeply of Your Spirit and be sustained. Help me to build and not destroy with the words I say, why I say them, and how I say them. Help me to give life, not impose death on how I speak to others. Let me be the strength for people to lean on when they need someone here on the earth in the flesh to hold them up.  

Grace and peace will be multiplied to me through the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given to me all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of God who has called me to His glory and excellence, by which He has given to me exceedingly great and precious promises so that through these things I might become a partaker of the divine nature and escape the corruption that is in the world through lust. For this reason, help me to make every effort to add virtue to my faith; and to my virtue, knowledge, and to my knowledge, self-control; and to my self-control, patient endurance; and to my patient endurance, godliness; and to my godliness, brotherly kindness; and to my brotherly kindness love. For if all of these reside in me and abound, they will ensure that I will neither be useless nor unfruitful in the knowledge of Jesus Christ my Lord. Help me to diligently make my calling and election sure so that when I add all these areas into my life I will not stumble and will be able to enter into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ which will be abundantly provided for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen. 2 Peter 1:3-11 MEV version
