Father, when people’s talk about us and we seem to get all upset because it hurts and we don’t understand, help us to see that in order for us to get where we need to be in you, it must be. Show me, father, how all that talk will keep me praying. If it wasn’t for them talking, I wouldn’t be praying. Thank you for all the talk. In Jseus name. Amen.
