Power of the Tongue

”The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” - Proverbs 18:21

Words have the power to motivate or destroy, energize or deflate, inspire or create despair. Many successful people can remember the time their father failed to give affirmation to them as a child. The result was either overachievement to prove their worth, or underachievement to prove he was right.

Many a wife has lost her ability to love because of a critical husband. Many a husband has left a marriage because of words of disrespect and ungratefulness. Stories abound regarding the power of words. There are just as many stories of those who have been encouraged, challenged, and comforted with words that made a difference in their lives.

Jesus knew the power of words. He used parables to convey His principles of the Kingdom of God . He used words of forgiveness and mercy. He used words to challenge. He used words to inspire His disciples to miraculous faith.

Highlights from Letters to Power 88


  • I've been a contributor for a few years. Sorry I haven't sent you any lately. About 3 months ago, I had water damage from an AC overflow that buckled my old style hardwood floors. Please just pray for my daughter. I've been a single parent since she was 5 yrs old. Jesus and God know the rest. It's been a long 2 months, but we are happy and at peace even though Victoria quit her job of 3 yrs and I also resigned from the same store due partly to the situation (that) Jesus and God know. Thank you for your prayers for us.


  • This station is refreshing - safe to listen to with anyone in your car. The 30-day challenge is wonderful! (I) can turn to another station after listening to this God centered music (and) it just makes me smile!


  • I am on Social Security. I love the music you play. It is so uplifting and encouraging. My tithes go to my church and other organizations as I am able. I will continue to send what I am able & to pray for this ministry. Blessings & love in the Lord.

Tips for coping with a diagnosis

If you're like most couples, you breezed through the "in sickness and in health" clause of your marriage vows without much thought. You were probably too busy gazing into your spouse's eyes.

Had you given it some thought, you might have pictured "in sickness and in health" as serving your wife chicken soup when she has the flu or running to the store at 10 p.m. to get your husband another box of Kleenex. Calamity was probably the furthest thing from your mind.

More often than not, the reality of "sickness" materializes out of nowhere. read more
