Prayer

Speech

Come into my heart, Lord

so I may seek

loving phrases in my speech.

Words tumble out as I talk

sometimes without a thought.

If I fail in speech,

I pray You will teach

me kind words to speak.

And when heart and thoughts

blend together

I realize listening in silence

is so much better.
