An instrument for healing
Lord, You know better than I am that I often say hurtful things without thinking of them. Please guide my lips and hold my tongue whenever I want to say something that I have not yet consulted with You. Always remind me that while knives and swords cut deep, words cause more pain that last longer. I pray that my lips would be an instrument for healing and not hate. I ask these things in the powerful name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
