TURN YOUR ABRASIVE SPEECH TOWARDS PRAYER 5/17/09
PIX: I saw the brushing of teeth in
horizontal motions across the teeth, really hard and
PIX: I saw the proper way to brush teeth up
and down in a vertical fashion.
PIX: I saw a letter that I had read a few
days ago by someone who was embittered at the president
and had forwarded a true, but cynical response to the
choices of the new administration.
PARABLE: I had a possible tooth infection from a
loose crown. I was on antibiotics for a week and now
they are taking their time to get the crown fixed to

earth. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you
have, that no one may take your crown.
QUICKENED MEMORY: Bob Jones received a vision

dentist and He was wanting to brush teeth and make sure
people’s mouths were clean. He interpreted it to be our
manner of speaking within the body of Christ.

people. Let your speech be filled with grace and
seasoned with salt so that you may know how you ought to
answer others. And be careful to take what is ailing
and inflamed into prayer.
Ps 19:14 NKJV
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my
heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength
and my Redeemer.
Col 4:6 NKJV
Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with
salt , that you may know how you ought to answer each
