Ephesians 5:3-4

Dear Father,

Keep me from talking about or thinking about illicit sex and pornography and covetousness, since you require that your holy people avoid referring to these things.

Keep me from filthy stories, silly or flippant talk, and any other kind of conversation not fitting for one who follows you.

Instead, let my mouth be filled with - thanksgiving!

In the name of Jesus I ask for the purity of mind and spirit that was in him. And I give you thanks. Amen.
