Proverbs 21:23 Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits

So, immediately I knew what I had to do if I wanted this area in my life to improve. I have to come before God and ask for His help!
So here it is,
Dear Heavenly Father, I come before you asking with faith that I will receive the power of the Holy Spirit to help me hold my tongue in the future. I desire, O Lord, to be a woman with a gentle tongue. Dear God, I want my tongue to be used to bring life, not death. I want the words that come out of my mouth to honor You. I want the self control that will prevent my mouth from uttering unkind words or words full of selfishness. God make me more and more like your son Jesus, I want to be a light shining bright for You. I want my husband to never hear me speak out in pride again. I want to be humble, and kind, I want to lift up , encourage and cheer the man that you have chosen for me. Thank you Lord, for giving me the assurance that I will be able to hold my tongue now in the future. With Your Holy Spirit in me I can do all things.
Thank you, I love you! In Jesus Name Amen
