Prayer: Bridle My Tongue!



Psalm 141:3 Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.


Dear Heavenly Father,
Enable me to bridle my tongue when I am tempted to say things that I will later regret or things that I don’t necessarily mean. Teach me to say what you would say concerning all situations, and help me to know that when I respond in silence that silence is not a bad thing. Even Your son, Jesus, responded in silence as He took his finger and wrote on the ground in John 8:6. Thank you, Father, that I understand that bridling the tongue is a practice of true Christianity because your Word says in James 1:26 that If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.


In Jesus’ name,
Amen


Psalm 141:3 Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

  5. I have struggled with my tongue all of my life. My family is known for being very outspoken. I am asking everyone who knows the words of prayer to bind together with me in asking the Lord to give me TOTAL VICTORY over my tongue. I want to be saved in the end and I know that it is more than just being baptized in Jesus Name and being filled with the Holy ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance as in Acts 2:38. A life also has to be lived in harmony with the word of God and I dont want my life to be in vain because of an unruly member such as the Tongue. Im also looking unto Jesus(Author & finisher of my Faith) who promised to perfect that thing which concerneth me. I know he is able to do anything including granting me the power to tame this tongue of mine. Thanks in Advance lord for all you have done, are doing and is going to do.

    1. To become a Christian, one must confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead (Romans 10:9). By confessing and believing, one solidifies an eternal relationship with God. By walking according to His will and according to His ways, one develops a fellowship with God. When there is a relationship along with fellowship, one can enjoy the benefits of salvation down here on earth and escape the penalty of an eternity in hell.

      Although having an unruly tongue may affect your fellowship, it will not affect your relationship. Once we become sons and daughters of God, we belong to HIM! How we choose to walk (our lifestyle) will affect our fellowship with HIM. God is our father. A father does not disown his children when they are not perfect. However, when the children are disobedient, they don't always receive the benefits from the father. That is the way our Heavenly Father is towards us. Isn't that good news?
      May our God (who is more than able) give you opportunities to practice bridling your tongue. May He shower you with the ability to speak at the right time and to hold your peace when it is best to be quiet.
      In the name of Jesus,
      Amen.
