'Our Words...'

Proverbs 10:19
When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, but he who restrains his lips is wise.

Proverbs 17:27
He who restrains his words has knowledge, And he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.

Proverbs 10:31a
The mouth of the righteous flows with wisdom...

Proverbs 10:32a
The lips of the righteous bring forth what is acceptable...

Proverbs 10:11a
The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life...

Proverbs 10:20a
The tongue of the righteous is as choice silver...

Proverbs 10:13a
On the lips of the discerning, wisdom is found...

Psalm 19:14
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.

Lord Jesus, my prayer today for us Believers is simply this: that we let our words be few...

With hearts that meditate on Your Words/ways, so our outpouring words glorify You...
With mouths that flow only when speaking “with wisdom” (Your wisdom! Your advice! Your Words!)...
With lips that “bring forth (ONLY) what is acceptable” to You...
With words that are “a fountain of life” to others—because we are speaking Your truth in love...
With tongues that are “as choice silver” because Your “wisdom is found” on our lips...

Let the words of (our) mouths and the meditations of (our) hearts be (increasingly) acceptable (and glorifying!) in Your sight, O Lord, (our) rock and (our) Redeemer...

AMEN
