April 21 – Evening


Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

(Ephesians 4:29)


Dear God,

You have called us to speak with grace and edification, and to use our words to build others up, rather than tearing them down. Please help me to be conscious of the impact of my words on others, and to speak with kindness and love. Help me to guard my tongue and to use my speech to bring peace and encouragement to those around me.

Please give me the strength to resist the temptation to speak in a way that is unkind or hurtful, and to instead choose words that reflect Your love and grace. Thank You for the power of Your Holy Spirit within me, and for the ability to bring healing and hope through the words I speak. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
