Scripture for the day is Proverbs 16:23, 22:11

The hearts of the wise make their mouths prudent,
    and their lips promote instruction.

One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace
    will have the king for a friend.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, you answered Jacob’s desperate request for the blessing, though secretly, because the Bible doesn’t provide your words to him (Genesis 32:29). I also need you to bless me in my most secret, inward being and fill it with your love (Ephesians 3:16-19) so my words will become like yours. Amen.
