THEME: DOMINION OF MAN
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.”
-The tongue has great power and dominion over our lives, situations and environment. Great care must be taken on the words we speak, that we may edify each other. James 3:5-6 reminds us that a tongue is a small member but boast about great things, like a fire which can destroy an entire forest. The tongue is a world of iniquity and can defile the whole body, setting on fire the course of nature by hell. When words abound sin is not lacking, but the prudent hold their tongues (Proverbs 10:19). We are called to ask for wisdom from the Lord that we may know how to address the Lord and one another through love. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body (James 3:2). Great care must thus be taken to prevent quarrels among relations and those under obligations to each other. Wisdom make it easy to forgive and speak grace to each other and our situations; but corruption makes it difficult. A gracious tongues edifies others and causes both inward and external peace. God gives us wisdom and purifies our hearts that our hearts may bear good fruit. The Holy Spirit gives us the fruit of love that we may be blessing to one another, and sets up apart to a path of prosperity and enjoyment of pleasant fruit forever.
Lord Almighty Father, You are the King of all kings and Lord of lords. You are the Lion of Judah we come before your throne of mercy today. We praise and worship You for all You have done for us this far surely Lord You have done us well and there is truly none like You. Oh Lord we pray that You will forgive our sins and purify us by Your precious blood. Father we thank You for Your Word that reveals to us the dominion we have over life and death by our tongue. We pray for Your wisdom that we shall always speak and declare Your great power over our life and all our life’s matters. We declare today that our tongue will be a vessel that is used by You and that invites Your power into all situations in Jesus Name. We pray that our tongue shall be used to praise, worship and glorify You in all ways. May You grant us wisdom so that our tongue always be used to encourage others. Father may You fill our tongues with Your Holy Spirit that whatever we utter shall be a blessing to many and shall lead many to You Christ because of Your Holy Spirit that works in us. We cancel every evil word we have spoken about ourselves and our lives and all matters concerning our lives in Jesus Mighty Name. Any evil curse or word that has been spoken against us in any way even in the past or by our bloodline and that may want to follow us, we nullify and cancel those words by the blood of Jesus in the Mighty Name of Jesus. We pray that You will be exalted in our lives. That the power that raised Jesus Christ from the grave shall work through our tongues to bring life into all situations. We speak life to every dead situations and matters in our lives. Today we lift You Lord and enthrone You in our lives. Thank You Lord for the tongue You have given us and the power You have given unto us. We love You and appreciate You. We pray this in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
