Mold my mouth today, that the words that it speaks may give praise to your name. I invest such energy in speaking of things that are often not of you, that I pray this morning that you shape my speech in a way that brings honor to you.
Scripture tells me that speech is an overflow of the heart, so my dishonorable words may simply be reflecting the parts of my heart that are dishonorable. Cure this, Lord, by the power of your Holy Spirit. Change my heart in such a way so that my one desire is to bring glory to you. Cure me of the desire to build my own kingdom, and may I seek yours with all my heart.
