A Soft, Wise and Gentle Tongue
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouths of fools pour out folly. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good. A gentle tongue is a tree of life,but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
Lord, give me a soft answer in the times my flesh feels like being rough. Help my tongue to be wise and pour out your knowledge not mine. Cause my words to be gentle and full of life and remove any perversion.
