Daily Prayer for October 3rd, 2020    

Good morning, God—thank you! 😊

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.” Therefore, let me not act foolhardy, but “be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger.” Bridling our tongues delivers wisdom, and the language of the wise brings healing. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
