Lenten Prayer Series, Day 1 (6)

Lenten Prayer Series, Day 1

4. Don’t gossip.

As you find a group of friends to support you on this journey, one of the biggest temptations is to turn the sharing of prayer requests into a gossiping session about your boss. I am guilty of this on so many occasions. The more wide-eyed stares and looks of disbelief I got from sharing about my boss, the more emboldened I became in my sharing. Soon, I found myself telling the same story to other friends that I would meet—sometimes adding in a few more details. 



As I continued to meet up with ex-colleagues who had also suffered under her ill-treatment and we exchanged stories about her “abuse”, I found my description of my boss turning from bad to worse; in my mind, she had become a hideous monster, devoid of any hope. But every time I came back from those gatherings, God would convict me of my poor testimony for Christ to both believers and non-believers. And over and over again, I would end up confessing my sin and asking God to forgive me for badmouthing her (Psalm 34:13).
