Prayer for Controlling the Tongue

Jehovah Jireh, You are the most high God who supplies all my needs. I can rest assured, knowing that anything I ask for will be given unto me, as long as I am faithful to You and it is in agreement with Your will for my life. For I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread.

Let my lips be used to give sweet, joyful praises unto Your name. Oh Jehovah Mekoddishkem, let words of criticism, negativity, corruption, pride, arrogance, gossip, bitterness, resentment, hate and spitefulness never leave my lips. For life and death are in the power of the tongue.

Break that Chain of Negativity

Break that chain of negativity, Oh Lord my God. Allow me to not only speak words of wisdom, upliftment, healing and love towards others, but also, let my actions follow through.

In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen and Amen!

Cheryce Rampersad

I’m a young Christian, from South Trinidad, seeking the wisdom of the Word and God’s blessings on my life. A journey, that’s just begun, but living to the Glory of God.

  • Dear Lord,
    More often than not our words
    Are a reflection of what’s in our hearts
    May the words we use be ever comforting and pleasing
    In strife may it bring peace and tranquility.

    In every word we speak may we remember
    We are a reflection of Your love and peace
    And the little ones who take after us
    Be better equipped with words that heal.
