Today I am going to pray over our mouths because what we say is so very important. It is all throughout God’s Word that what we speak will come to be – we create reality and especially our own lives, whether good or evil, through what we say.
I pray that You will place a guard over our mouths today. Help us to guard our tongues and be very, very careful of what we say. If we shouldn’t say something, please close our mouths and make it impossible for us to speak. I pray that every word that comes from our lips is full of wisdom and righteousness, useful to glorify You or provide edification to those around us. If we can’t say something nice, help us not to say anything at all. Help us not to speak ill of anyone, not to gossip or badmouth, but to only speak things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praise-worthy.
Thank You, Father God!
In Jesus’ powerful name we pray.
