Words sometimes flow from my mouth like a gushing river.
Will I never learn that some of them might put someone on the defensive –
Or hurt feelings, or confuse or antagonize?
God please help me to think before I speak.
Help me edit the words I speak the same way I revise the words I write.
It would be nice to be able auto correct what we say.
I pray that I would never become a stumbling block to anyone.
I pray that I can remain silent until I’ve thought things through.
I pray for discernment and wisdom.
Lord, let my words be used to encourage, inspire and motivate.
Use me to share the only true Word that I can depend on –
Your Holy Bible.
