At times when words fail me,
I pray for You to bless their hearts
with ears and eyes like Yours,
so they can hear and see what I meant
At times when I start to build a wall,
curl up in my shell and thicken my mask,
I pray for You to enlighten my heart;
Bless mine with ears and eyes like Yours,
so I wouldn't misinterpret their words.
Cleanse my heart, for I know that it is on parade whenever I speak.
Cleanse my heart and may the words I speak reflect understanding,
patience, compassion and Your grace.
"The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds."
