Dear Lord, I know that words matter. I know that I can build up my family or tear it down just with my words. I pray that You would help me today to be in control of my words and to use them to build my family up. Holy Spirit please anoint my tongue. May I use my words to lift up, affirm, and encourage my husband. Inspire creativity in the words that I choose. Help me not to have loose lips that gossip or speak badly about anyone, especially about my husband. I pray that You would ultimately change my heart so that I wouldn’t have to think twice about what comes out of my mouth. I desire to be a woman who encourages and builds others up in Jesus’ name AMEN!
