We either build relationships with words or let them fail when we do not speak correctly. This happens in our homes, at work, in business, in church and elsewhere. Jesus Christ our Lord and saviour knew when to speak, had great will power to remain silent when it was the best option. When Satan tried to entice him with sin quoting scripture, Jesus spoke with wisdom with power citing the appropriate context of the scripture.
Here are declarations which can take you into the straight path of pleasing God in your conversations and building up strong relationships with your fellow human beings. In the process you can succeed more often when you speak, one to one as well as when you address a group of people.
