Listen to my speech
Listen to what I'm saying
Listen to what I am NOT saying
Listen while looking at my body language

Help me to get a smoother way of speaking
Help me to get rid of or deal with my baggage of fear and shame
Help me to go forward to deal with my stutter, my life and the people in it
Help me to communicate

Listen and help, so that I can love others the way I love myself.
