Pray for our Church, TWPC-EC: : “To watch over our speech.”

Read and Ponder: Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips! (Psalm 141:3 ESV). Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer. (Psalm 19:14 ESV).

Food for Thought: Think first before we speak. Be wise in choosing the right words. If we are weak in this area, let us look to God to guide and help us. We can use Psalm 141:3 as a prayer to God. We do not want to stumble others in our speech. May we be thoughtful to each other as we speak. May we speak words of encouragement to each other. Remember that the LORD is our Rock and our Redeemer. In our speech, we want to please God.

Prayers:

  1. Pray that we will think first before we speak.
  2. Pray that we will know when to speak and when to be silent.
  3. Pray that we will speak words of encouragement to each other.
  4. Pray that we will ask God for His guidance and help in speaking appropriately to one another.
  5. Pray that we will be considerate about how others may respond to us when we speak with them.
  6. Pray that we will be sensitive to the Spirit’s leading in our speech.
  7. Pray that we will be open to corrections if we falter in our speech.
