Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

Proverbs 15
1A soft answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
2The tongue of the wise dispenses knowledge,
but the mouths of fools pour out folly.

How I speak tells a lot about me. What is my preferred communication style?

Do I offer criticism or praise?
Do I always need to be right?
Do I need to show everyone how much I know?
Do I listen patiently to what others have to say?

Pray to God, using these words or others as you see fit.
Holy God,
Thank you for Jesus teaching and example.
Thank you for Jesus sacrifice.
Help me control my tongue.
Let me become more like Jesus.
