Dear Lord, I give You permission to shut my mouth for at least twenty minutes every day. When I open it again, let it be under Your divine supervision. Let me speak words of forgiveness to myself and others. Let my mouth become a vessel of Your grace and Your love. May the words that I speak bring to life the essence that is You. From this day forward, let the words of my mouth be accepable to You.
(Iyanla Vanzant, Faith in the Valley, p. 52)
