I Pray for Every Morning



 But no one can tame the human tongue; it is a restless evil [undisciplined, unstable], full of deadly poison. James 3:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

One of the most important things I pray for every morning is for patience to deal with difficult folks. Wisdom, to know when to speak and when to shut up. When it is time to speak, bless me with the right words to say and the right manner and time to say them in. Wisdom to know when it is best to leave the situation because the other soul is just baiting me into a useless fight, which is a perverted hobby for them.

And you know what?

My life has a lot less stress and a lot more peace since praying these and having Jehovah bless me with granting them unto me every day.

I thank Him every time He intervenes with that soft whisper to shut my mouth, get out of there or to speak softly to the other soul.

“We can never hear the warning often enough. The tongue may be small, but oh so deadly when not under the sanctifying grace of God.” — Lin Pearson

Prayer: Oh my loving Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) please send the Holy Spirit to watch over my mouth and save me from spewing forth filth for which I shall pay a heavy price for later. I humbly request this in the name of He whose words were only loving and healing Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. This is a great lesson. It’s so important to know when to speak and when to be silent.

  2. How important it is to know when to keep quiet. Still struggle with this at times.

    • I have learned that the hard way.
      Every day I pray the Holy Spirit force my mouth shut when I want to open it at the wrong time. Boy am I glad He obliges me.

  3. Ropheka, each time I read your post I am grateful. Today more so. I have thought often how the words I say often don’t reflect what I choose; they reflect my temptation. But once articulated, the pull of temptation seems even stronger. Your post reminds me to listen more, think before I speak, and speak sparingly. Thank you for maintaining this blog. I’ve begun to count on your internet presence as a touchstone.

    • Thank you for the glowing comment.
      The one thing I have learned it to depend upon the Holy Spirit to guide me when to speak, what to say and most importantly when to keep my mouth shut.

  4. Thanks for your like of my post, ” Israel 15 – Shabbat Candle Blessing;” you are very kind.

  5. Wonderful reminder, Joseph.

  6. I also think we need to call on the Holy Spirit to help us to speak truth to power or those of strong if doubtful views. Courage to express thoughtful and compassionate witness is often necessary in Britain today.

  7. Often when dealing with difficult people, it is hard to accept that they are ‘difficult’ in the first place. We as Christians, can too easily blame ourselves when a conversation doesn’t go well or it leaves us with negative feelings. Perhaps, we need also to ask for the honesty of the Spirit to know when we have done our best and ‘bow out’ when speaking further will help neither party.

    Always enjoy your blogs and every blessing.

    • Thank you
      Difficult folks keep on denying the truth in hopes of exhausting you and you give up. They foolishly then believe they have won.
      They may have won they battle but at what cost to the relationship? As well, they never mature and as such will never be blessed with a loving relationship, including with themselves.
