Psalm 141:3–Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.
Oh, how often do we need one of these! It seems I am daily saying something that I wish I could take back or change. The Lord knows that we will struggle with what we say because we struggle with what we think each and every day. Typically, what we are thinking will find a way or circumstance to slip out of our lips. Today, I will turn my thoughts over to the Lord so that He will guard my mouth and make sure that it says only what He would have me to say.
Father, I praise You and I lift You up. I know that You are a strong guardian and only You are going to be able to keep my mouth from saying things that I shouldn’t. Guard my mouth today! Keep it closed when it needs to stay closed and keep it open when it needs to be open. I don’t want any word coming out except for words that You have chosen for me to say.
