20 prayers about guarding your words




Oh, Lord,

I don't have the words for what I'm feeling right now. Or what I should say. Or if I should say anything at all.

Words are tricky. They tend to pop out. Help me to pray YOUR words about MY words:

Whenever I open my mouth, give me the faith to speak the gospel fearlessly, as I should. (Ephesians 6:19)

Help my speech to be as beautiful and valuable as apples of gold in pictures of silver. (Proverbs 25:11)

Lord, guard my mouth! My words will either acquit me or condemn me! (Matthew 12:37)

Give me your words of wisdom that none of my adversaries can contradict or resist. (Luke 21:15)

I want to remain in you and have your words to remain in me; then I can ask anything of you and you will give it to me. (John 15:7)

Let no one deceive me with empty words; keep me from deceiving others with empty words. (Ephesians 5:6)

May my words be formed and produced by the Spirit of God. (1 Corinthians 2:13)

May my words not be conducive to quarrels and controversies; may they never produce envying, strife, or malicious talk. (1 Timothy 6:4)

Lord, use my words to encourage others to seek you and serve you. (1 Thessalonians 4:18)

In Jesus' precious name,

Amen.
