April 1 – Morning


Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

(Psalm 141:3)


Dear God,

You are my refuge and my strength, and I come before You with a humble heart. Help me to guard my tongue and keep watch over the words that come out of my mouth, so that I may not speak evil or engage in wickedness. Teach me to be mindful of my words and to use them to show love and kindness to others. Guide me to speak words that bring life and build up those around me, instead of tearing them down. Help me to always seek Your wisdom and discernment in my speech.

I pray that You will give me the strength to resist temptation when it comes to speaking negative or hurtful words. Let my words be a reflection of Your love and grace, and may they bring glory to Your name. Thank You for Your patience and forgiveness, and for always being there to guide me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
