Proverbs 16:23-24 NLT
From a wise mind comes wise speech;
the words of the wise are persuasive.
Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
Proverbs 15:4 ESV
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.
O Father, how many spirits in the Mississippi Delta have been broken by perverse words? Bring forth a profusion of life-giving and holy words, for every month of the year, for the healing of the families and schools in the Mississippi Delta. In the name of Jesus, we claim the power of wise speech, kind words, and wholesome tongues over the Delta land. Amen.
