Words Carry Power

As you speak so you are. you are the manifestation of your words/thoughts.

Pray: ‘Lord, I join with the psalmist David and ask: ‘.Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer (Psalm 19:14). I realize that the words I speak have tremendous power, both in my own life and in my relationships. Your Word says Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Proverbs 18:21). 

Teach me to always speak words that are true to Your Word and glorify You. Help me to be careful to speak words that build others up and not tear them down, that edify rather than criticize, that is spoken in love and truth and not twisted by my desires and expectations, and that bring confidence and not discouragement. Where I have spoken words that are harmful to anyone else, forgive me. 

Keep me from saying things that hurt or cut others down in any way. I want to be kind with my words and have the tongue of the wise that promotes healing and blessing (Proverbs 12:18). Help me to have such faith in Your Lordship over my life that I can ‘Do all things without murmurings and disputings’ (Philippians 2:14). Help me not to speak negative things about myself. And every time I start to say a critical word, help me to stop immediately and keep a lid on it. 

Your Word says, ‘Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man’ (Colossians 4:6). From now, let my words honor and glorify You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.’
