What timing...lord, your know the needs of my heart and the situations that just keep coming at me today. Give strength and wisdom to be the light in it all today. I pray that those folks around me only see and hear You.

Loving Father, we come to You today asking for Your strength. Strength Father, to control our tongue. Such a small muscle, but so powerful to praise You, build others up, or wreck havoc in another's life. Lord, give me the strength and wisdom to control my tongue. Let only blessings and words of encouragement come from it. Let nothing come from our tongue that we wouldn't be proud to say in front of you. Help us to show others your love with our tongue, not Satan's hate! Love You Jesus! Amen.

DAY 188: Focus On Encouragement

Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. ~ Psalm 141: 3

Such a simple prayer for a big time problem, right?  Your mouth can be a weapon that can cut deep, sting your victims, and wage wars.  It can also be the honey that serves hope, encourages others, and signals leadership.  You get to decide what comes from your lips - venom or honey. 

The stronger your heart and relationship with God, the easier to manage your tongue. It takes work.  Be an encourager. Pray for restraint to hold back the venom. Pray for courage to spread the honey.
