Prayer of the Day
The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
—Proverbs 12:18
The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.
—Proverbs 15:4

Lord, take charge of my words, which have the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21). Set a guard over my mouth. Keep watch over the door of my lips (Psalm 141:3). May my words edify, not destroy; benefit, not harm. May my words reflect Your gospel truths and display the fear of the Lord, not the fear of man. May they be prayerful words that point my child to You in all circumstances.
