Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. ~ Ephesians 4:29
Father God we bless and honor you as we give thanks for waking us up in our right mind today. We come seeking you for deliverance from speaking negatively about others and ourselves. Your word says that we must give an account of every idle word that we have spoken from our mouth.
We ask first for your forgiveness for every negative confession of words that have proceeded from our mouth of doubt, fear and unbelief regarding your word and your ability to manifest your word in our life. We pray also for forgiveness for speaking harsh, unkind, unloving and hateful words to our family, friends, co-workers, business associates, and members of the body of Christ, including Pastors, leaders and those that are in authority over us.
We confess our sins and know that through the blood of Christ you are just, willing and able to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse our heart from unrighteousness. We pray God that you will free us now from the judgement of answering to you for the sins of our mouth.
We ask God that you will open the eyes of all that are blinded by pride, hate, lust, greed, jealousy and every other human failing. Give each one the mind of Christ and the heart of you our Heavenly Father. Deliver us now from the temptation to curse and speaking negative words. Remove the heart of stone and replace it with a heart of flesh so that we exercise love and kindness as we speak the words that are wholesome and encouraging to others in Jesus name, amen.
