Lord God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, sovereign ruler of the heart;
Lord, guard my mouth, let me not speak or even whisper an unkind word against another person. For these are the things that destroy families and drive wedges between people.

Protect me when I am tempted to tell another person about an issue I am having with someone because these words can rise up and destroy relationships.

Protect my heart against anger and bitterness, let me be loving and forgiving in all that I say and do. Do not let satan rob me of my blessings by putting cruel thoughts in my mind

Protect me from the heartless, the false, the Pharisees, those that judge me and those that would seek to harm me. Lord have mercy upon them, may they not be judged the way they judge others but may they find Your infinite mercy.  For these are the hurt people of the world.  They hurt others because they have been hurt. Lord, heal their hurts, place the balm of Gilead upon them.  May the hurts they have suffered not spew out onto other people.

Lord may I learn to worship You in the midst of my pain, restore unto me the joy of Your salvation.  Sing to my Spirit, hymns and songs of praise that my heart may be restored.  Give me the courage to be the bigger person and to do the right thing in the face of adversity.  For I can honestly say with the Apostle Paul “I am content in all circumstances whether in want or plenty” For You are greater than any adversity.  You are better than gold or silver.

This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it!
