In difficult times it’s easy to let my emotions take control and pour forth words I later regret. In these moments, help me be still and focus on You. Remind me of what’s true, what’s honorable and what’s worthy of praise.
“Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.” Psalm 141:3 (NIV)
Take control of my mouth, for “I am determined not to sin in what I say,” Psalm 17:3c (NLT)
May Your praise roll off my lips like water from a well. In joy or pain, may I choose to tell of your goodness and glorify your name with all that I am.
In Jesus Name,
