Praying with U2

While lifting weights earlier this week, these lyrics from U2's How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb song, "Yahweh" gave me pause. I sat up, skipped back a few seconds on my iPod and listened once more. The words resonated with the struggles I have faced intensely of late.

Take this mouth
So quick to criticize
Take this mouth
Give it a kiss

These words are my prayer as I stick my foot in my mouth daily: judgment, criticism, cynicism.

"Reckless words pierce like a sword,
but the tongue of the wise brings healing."
-King Solomon, Proverbs 12:18
