let my words be few (a prayer)

Lord Jesus, let my words be few.
Let me be quick to listen and slow to speak.
Keep my tongue from evil and tamed from deceit.
Let my speech nourish others and bring healing.
Let my ears test my words the same way my tongue tastes its food.
Keep me silent when I am foolish and in lack of discernment.
Let me always rejoice and speak only of your righteousness.
I've hid Thy Word in my heart so that I will not sin against You...
Let me speak Thy Word - always.
