the Precept (Principle)
Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
the Promise (from God)
The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning.
our Prayer (to God)
Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
Take each Precept and Promise and Prayer and pray them back to the Lord as one prayer
FREE prayer helps are always available on our Prayer-Basics-Page
NOTE: Preparing your heart will directly impact what escapes your mouth.
TURNING THE ABOVE DAY’S VERSES INTO A PRAYER
Lord, as we think about this day’s prayer, we are reminded of times when we have said things, that we wish we could erase. We admit that we too Lord, desire our speech to be appropriate to everyone, and so by faith, we trust You to prick our hearts, before we say something we ought not to say. Thank You Lord…
NOTE: Be careful of seasoning your words “with salt” as approval to be ungracious. Be wise by being prudent.
