I will bridle my anger, trash my wrath, cool my pipes-it only makes things worse. -PSALM 37:8 (THE MESSAGE)
I follow the example of the Lord, who is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy and loving-kindness. -PSALM 103:8
I am slow to anger and have great understanding; I am not like he who is hasty of spirit, exposing and exalting his folly. -PROVERBS 14:29
I speak soft answers that turn away wrath, not grievous words that stir up anger. -PROVERBS 15:1.2
I am not a hot-tempered person who stirs up strife, but I am slow to anger, appeasing contention. -PROVERBS 15:18
Good sense makes me restrain my anger, and it is my glory to overlook a transgression or an offense. -PROVERBS 19:11
I am not quick in spirit to be angry or vexed, for anger and vexation lodge in the bosom of fools. -ECCLESIASTES 7:9
When I am angry, I do not sin or let my wrath (my exasperation, my fury or indignation) last until the sun goes down. -EPHESIANS 4:26
I will let all bitterness and indignation and wrath (passion, rage, bad temper) and resentment (anger, animosity) and quarreling (brawling, clamor, contention) and slander (evil-speaking, abusive or blasphemous language) be banished from me, with all malice (spite, ill will, or baseness of any kind).
And I will become useful and helpful and kind to others, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving others [readily and freely], as God in Christ forgave me. -EPHESIANS 4:31-32
Now I must get rid of all these things: anger, passion, and hateful feelings. No insults or obscene talk must ever come from my lips. -COLOSSIANS 3:8 (GNT)
I won't forget that it is best to listen much, speak little, and not become angry; for anger doesn't make me good, as God demands that I must be. -JAMES 1:19-20 (TLB)

As a fan of Joyce Meyer, forgive me for wanting to sing her praises. She proves in everything that she writes that she has a true connection with God. It is through her words and efforts that millions are able to see the light. I just love her so.
This little book I call it my portable sword. I I love it because it guides me and helps me use God's word and scriptures to pray. I carry it everywhere I go, it's so small it fits any bag. This book will be one of the gifts I will give to my family and friends for birthdays, Christmas or anytime.
I have this book on my night stand by my bed and I read it every night before I go to bed. It has scriptures on everything. And I have found them so comforting and helpful. Also reading scripture before I go to sleep helps me sleep better and more peacefully. This would make a really good gift for someone too.
Such an awesome book on the the importance and power of the Word of God. Its amazing it truthfully helps out.
This little book is a great resource to go to for whatever a person maybe be going through. It is compact for easy carrying, and subjects are smartly alphabetized by subject so a reader can find those powerful words easily. I highly recommend this book!
"The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word" is a must read for anyone seeking better understanding of God's Word and the power in His Word. The opening guide and explanation is easy to understand. Many quotes are given for addressing specific needs. There is power in God's written and spoken Word, we just have to use His Word often. The Word of God is a Secret Power.
This book is broken down into sections and most verses are wrote in first person. This makes them easier to declare out loud. Wonderful book I have it as an ebook and love it!!! Thanks Joyce!!!!
I LOVE THIS BOOK AND ENJOY IT VERY MUCH.
I love having this little book around to quickly remind me of God's word when I need it most. I always used to pack it in my carry on when I travelled so I was very excited to get it for my nook.
Awesome day with The Word of God!!
But there is no secret power to speaking Gods word. Anyone can speak Gods word. Overall it seems like a good book.
Very positive, very inspiring.
Great choices for subjects to read and address. Good for daily quiet times with God. This has helped me a lot!
