Day 24: His Talk

Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
and those who love it will eat its fruit.
- Proverbs 18:21
.
For our of the abundance of the heart
the mouth speaks.
- Matthew 12:34
.
Lord, I pray Your Holy Spirit would guard my husband's mouth so that he will speak only words that edify and bring life. Help him to not be a grumbler, complainer, a user of foul language, or one who destroys with his words, but be disciplined enough to keep his conversation godly. Your Word says a man who desires a long life must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit (Psalm 34:12-13). Show him how to do that. Fill him with Your love so that out of the overflow of his heart will come words that build up and not tear down. Work that in my heart as well.
.
May Your Spirit of love reign in the words we speak so that we don't miscommunicate or wound one another. Help us to show each other respect, speak words that encourage, share our feelings openly, and come to mutual agreements without strife. Lord, You've said in Your Word that when two agree, You are in their midst. I pray that the reverse be true as well - that You will be in our midst so that we two can agree. Let the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, our strength and our Redeemer (Psalm 19:14).* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
.
Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth,
but what is good for necessary edification,
that it may impart grace to the heavens.
- Ephesians 4:29
.
