But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
The words that proceed from our lips impact the direction of our lives. Though the tongue can be considered as the smallest member of the body yet it is likened to the rudder in a ship that controls the whole ship – James 3:4. The tongue is a fire and no man has ever been able to tame a fire once it erupts!
As believers we must understand the power in the tongue and deliberately decide to use our tongue in a direction that blesses our lives. Firstly, just like our opening scripture talks about putting off filthy communication from our mouth; we must deliberately avoid words or the kind of communication that stirs the kind of fire the bible talks about.
Secondly, choose to speak right always! Let your tongue only bring forth words that edify and impart life. Death and life reside in the tongue, Proverbs 18:21 shows us. Therefore choose to bring forth life always!

G. PRAY FOR A COUNTRY IN NEED TODAY: BELGIUM
26% of the people are unreached with the Gospel. Spiritually, Belgium is one of the neediest countries in Europe, with great spiritual apathy and faith largely banished from the public sphere; there are now 380 mosques in Belgium.
PRAY FOR BELGIUM; We are praying for revival in Belgium, that the passion for God will return in that Nation.
H.PRAY FOR JERUSALEM Father, I ask today that there will be peace in Jerusalem and that your purposes be established in that city. Amen (Psa. 122:6)
