Mouth of the Righteous

Reading Proverbs 10 this morning, I am struck by all the things mentioned about the mouth of the righteous:

~ it is a fountain of life (vs. 11)
~ wisdom is found there (vs. 13)
~ it holds its tongue (vs. 19)
~ is as choice silver (vs. 20)
~ bring nourishment to many (vs. 21)
~ brings forth wisdom (vs. 31)
~ knows what is fitting (vs. 32)

Lord, please grant my mouth to be as a righteous one before You bearing these qualities! In Jesus' Name, Amen.
