Empower Me Lord

My loving Father in heaven,
I am asking you today for power,
To fight against hurtful gossip,
Falling o'er me in a raging shower.

Names carelessly strewn all about,
Like feathers blown in a fierce storm,
Injurious and carried by force,
Out of malice gossip was born.

Tie down my tongue Master,
Let it not wage hurt when others despise,
Speaking words of kindness only,
Let Gods love be viewed through vindictive eyes.

I am pleading heavenly Father,
Take all spiteful desire away,
Let only benevolence emerge,
In a Christ like manner, I pray.

Psalm 15: 1~3
Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle?
Who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that
walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness,

and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that
backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil
to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach
against his neighbour.
