The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit. -- Proverbs 15:4 Father, I want my words to be a blessing today. I want them to reflect Your grace. I want them to bring healing to the hurting and comfort to the grieving. I want them to be tender with the broken. I want them to be honorable and truthful in difficult circumstances. I want them to be upright when the language around me is crude. Through Your Spirit, use my speech to bless others and bring You praise. In the name of Jesus, Your ultimate Word, I pray. Amen.
