Keep our tongues from evil. May we treat others they way that we want to be treated, and show love unto them as we are commanded to do. Cause us to grow in reverence and respect unto You. May we be honest in all that we do and say. Thank-you that we are planted on the solid Rock and we shall not be moved.

In Jesus’ name, Amen
