This week’s prayer comes from Neil Chappell of the Congregational Federation.
Take control of what I say, O Lord, and guard my lips (Psalm 141 verse 3 NLT).
Incomparable God, take control of what I say, O Lord, and guard my lips when I am about to say something I should not say. Help me to think before I speak. Help me to pause before I speak.
Help me to make sure that the words I speak are worth hearing. If they are not, let me be silent.
Being quiet may be better than being foolish. Being silent may be better than being critical, judgmental, or destructive.
Incomparable God, take control of what I say, O Lord, and guard my lips as I share words of majesty and wisdom. May they be words of healing, wholeness, hope and inspiration.
