A Prayer for Our Mouths


I confess that I sometimes say things I shouldn’t—things I regret. Will you please help me to grow and mature in this area?

When a snarky retort or unkind word is on the tip of my tongue, help me to rein it in and remain silent. When I’m tempted to speak careless words, help me to walk in self-control. Set a guard over my mouth. Keep watch over the door of my lips. Keep me aware that You hear every word I speak.

Help me instead to speak words that encourage, bring truth, and offer hope. Help me to be a wise woman who builds her house, not a foolish woman who tears it down.

May the words I speak be truthful and kind, and may every word that comes out of my mouth honor You and bless those around me. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
