To speak a word of encouragement.
It doesn't cost to give some cheer
To someone who is in despair.
For someone who is filled with care.
Words and prayer take time and thought,
We all can certainly afford
Kind and loving, encouraging words.
Words and prayers are absolutely free---
So why not use them as much as can be?
You may have to watch what you spend,
But it doesn't cost to encourage a friend.
So go and encourage someone today--
You can brighten their day by what you say.
