Praying from 1 Timothy 5:13 relating to Idleness, Gossip, Busybodies.
Dear Lord, please help us to avoid idleness and to use our time wisely. May we not be tempted to go from house to house, wasting precious moments that could be spent serving you. Help us to guard our tongues and avoid gossip and being busybodies. May we only speak words that honor you and build up those around us. Thank you for your guidance and grace in our lives. Amen.
Verse: Besides, they also learn to be idle, going about from house to house. Not only idle, but also gossips and busybodies, saying things which they ought not.
1 Timothy 5:13
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to avoid idleness, gossip, and being a busybody.
