Praying from Ephesians 5:4 relating to Purity, Speech, Gratitude.
Dear Lord, please help me to avoid filthiness, foolish talking, and jesting, which are not appropriate. Instead, may I always be grateful and give thanks for all the blessings you have bestowed upon me. May my words and actions reflect your love and grace. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Verse: nor filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not appropriate, but rather giving of thanks.
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to avoid filthiness, foolish talking, and jesting, and instead focus on giving thanks.
