The Bible has a lot to say about wise speech: we should be quck to listen and slow to speak, when we do speak we should use wise and thoughtful words, and we should have integrity in our speech as we seek to do what we say. In Ecclesiastes 5.1-7 the biblical author takes these principles of wise speech and applies them to how we talk to God in worship. We should come to the Lord ready to listen first and foremost, and when we speak to the Lord we should be thoughtful with our words (not hasty and rash), and when we tell the Lord we will do something we should do it!
