{James 1:26-27; NLT}

If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

Father in heaven, Thank You for all the blessings of my life. Everything, from the air I breathe to the clothes that I wear, are a gift from You. Help me to be grateful for these gifts and not take them for granted.

I confess that one of the things I have difficulty doing is controlling my tongue. Too often I allow my mood to dictate what comes out of my mouth. If I am having a bad day, I have no problem passing that on to other people through my words and actions. Forgive me for not controlling my tongue.

Lord, I ask that You will open my eyes to ways I can help people in need. I get consumed with my life: my goals, my problems, my desires, my struggles, which causes me to miss the needs of other people. Help me to live out my faith in love by helping those around me. Use me to be a conduit of Your love and grace, so people can experience You through my actions.

It is in the name of Jesus, my Lord and Savior, that I pray, amen.
