Like this verse says, it has praised God and the next day, criticized one of God’s.  Let’s start the week off with using our mouths to pray for our mouths. I’ll pray for you, will you pray for me too? Thanks. God, forgive us for misusing our mouths. Forgive us for words spoken that should not have been and words not spoken that should have been. Please give us wisdom in our minds before we speak with our mouths. Please give us the conviction to build up, not tear down and to remain silent when words are too many. We declare our dependence upon you for the mouths you have given us. And we ask this in your name, with mouths that want to do right. Amen.
