Taking back control through the power of the tongue
Simple but powerful. As simple as it may seem, the tongue has been the destruction of so many. With the tongue, you can uplift or curse, bless or condemn, praise or disgrace. It is important to keep it under control. Words once spoken, cannot be taken back.
So today, speak words of love, encouragement and joy to yourself and to others. Bless them and praise God rather than curse. And watch God’s blessings flow into your life.
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
Prayer to control 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.
Proverbs 21:23 Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.
Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
Life and death are in the power of the tongue.
Grant me peace in my heart, Oh Jehovah Shalom. Grant me peace in my mind. May my words only uplift those around me, instead of cause harm. 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.
Psalm 141:3 Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
1 Peter 3:10 For Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.
Break that Chain of Negativity
Jehovah Shammah, let no evil befall me as I live my life serving You. Let any negativity spoken against me be destroyed in Jesus name, for I am covered and protected under the precious blood of the King.
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!
