Sweet Jesus, sometimes I can’t believe what comes out of mouth! Help me to control the things that I saw:
Scripture quotations taken from the NASB.
There’s so much in your Word about how it’s important to watch my mouth. “The mouth speaks what the heart is full of,” (Luke 6:45) “no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison,” (James 3), and “It’s what comes out of a person’s mouth that makes them unclean,” (Matthew 15:11) are just a few.
I can’t tame my tongue on my own, Lord. I need your Spirit’s help. Thank you for the self control that you’ve instilled in me. Help me to choose control. Help me to swallow my pride and forgo the last work or that hurtful, needling insult. Kill passive aggressive language while it’s still in my brain before it ever reaches my mouth.
Protect my mouth from agreeing with the enemy’s lies. Make me painfully aware of the profound meaning and power of every word that comes out of my mouth. If I speak life-giving words, help me to see the fruit that comes about as a result. Likewise, teach me to see the ramifications of words of death. When I sin and say things that help the enemy’s plan to kill and destroy, give me the awareness and courage to break that agreement and make amends. Make my words the words of a peacemaker, Holy Spirit!
You gave me a mouth for a reason. Like a father entrusting his son with his tools, you gave us mouths because you have work to do and you know that we can do good things with these powerful mouths if we surrender our hearts to you. I want my mouth to honor you, Jesus.
Jesus, one of the powerful uses for our mouths is to pray and that’s what we’re going to do right now. We bless these people and lift up their prayer requests to you:
Yes, Lord. Help Donna’s daughter, Dana, in the USA to gain weight. We speak healing over her body and believe that she will be strengthened day by day and will be freed from the need for pain medication.
Lord, bring peace to Alina’s marriage and protect her:
I want you to please pray for us, because the fit was so sudden after the most lovely amazing day, so sudden in one moment that I profoundly believe that he was physically influenced by a demon. Just like our community, I believe in spiritual warfare, and I know my husband. He has more faith than me. He is the one who brought me to God in the first place, for which I am forever thankful. But though we are both saved, I know that demons try to attack whatever weaknesses they can find especially in Christian households. If they see a happy marriage and two people who love the Lord, they will try to attack. Do you think that it is a real possibility that a Demon of violence has influenced my husband last night?
I took some blankets and slept on the floor in the living room, with my Bible next to my pillow. The tears of pain were so overwhelming that I just silently let them fall from my body in shock, as I begged God to show my husband the face of the demon that had just influenced him, so that he would be horrified by what he had just committed and realize what he had done. Please, PLEASE Pray for me the same thing. If this doesn’t happen, I don’t want to live. I don’t know what to do because I cannot take anymore pain in my life. My husband is my everything.
God, thank you for praying, faith-filled wives like Alina. We pray against any demonic influence over her husband. Bring him to a place of repentance and heal their marriage. Strengthen them to a place of new-found intimacy and gentleness.
