Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. Psalm 141:3
Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building up, as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29
God, help us to control our tongues! Our human error allows us to spit harsh words in emotional moments, only to regret them within a few minutes. Bind our tongues and teach us to think before we speak. Amen.
