2 O God, whom I praise, do not be silent, for wicked and treacherous mouths attack me. They speak against me with lying tongues;
3 with hateful words they surround me, attacking me without cause.
4 In return for my love they slander me, even though I prayed for them. (NAB)
I pray Father that I will not gossip or speak evil about anyone.
Replace my slanderous words and thoughts with prayers of petition.
Forgive me Father.
