Dear Father in Heaven, it is not possible for me to keep my mouth from speaking things it should not. Father, I need You to help me to know what to say that will build __________ up rather than tear down or hurt.
Please make me aware, by Your divine power, of __________’s needs so I can respond in a way that benefits him/her.
The disapproval I pour out on others often stems from my own insecurity. Other times you may need help seeing yourself differently. Find ways to give approval more often to those around you.
When things need addressing don’t show your disapproval, but choose a calm time to talk. Relationships that are worth keeping are worth the effort. Help me to feel that nudge of Your Holy Spirit before words rush out of my mouth.
You ever get that feeling something just isn’t quite right?
