Prayer for Controlling My 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.

For 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, so that my words would only uplift those around me instead of 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.

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.
