So also is the tongue a small member, yet it boasts of great exploits. How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire. – James 3:5

O God, 2016-01-20 19.45.51

Rein in my tongue.

Let me hold my silence. Let me think before speaking. Let me say only what helps and heals.

Reign in my tongue.

Let me speak the truth. Let me speak with power. Let me speak your words.

Amen.
