“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart BE PLEASING IN YOUR SIGHT, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.” (Psa. 19:14) [Pleasing – comes from the word: “ratson” which means: goodwill, favor or acceptance. So, my prayer is; Abba Father help me today in all my thoughts, in all of the words I speak: Let them BLESS YOU AND PLEASE YOU! I know if they do then I will be a blessing to others!] “Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and KNOW MY THOUGHTS! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” (Psa. 139:23-24) [The thoughts we think will obviously have an effect on the words we speak. It is the words we speak that allows others to “know” us. Lead me Lord in the right path, let our thoughts be influenced by you Holy Spirit so my conversation will be acceptable to you my Abba Father!] “All the words of my mouth are righteous; THERE IS NOTHING TWISTED OR CROOKED IN THEM.” (Prov. 8:8) [We must be sure to always speak the truth “in love” Our words maybe just what is needed for that one who is hurting today!] “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. THE WORDS THAT I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU ARE SPIRIT AND LIFE.” (John 6:63) [Just look at who we are:] “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors…” (2 Corin. 5:20) [So let us speak peace into people today, let us speak life, health and joy as Christ’s spokesmen!] “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and DOES NOT DOUBT IN THEIR HEART but believes that WHAT THEY SAY WILL HAPPEN, it will be done for them.” (Mark 11:23) [Jesus wants us to know that he hears AND ANSWERS OUR PRAYS, he is paying attention to the words that are coming out of our mouths!] “Therefore I tell you, WHATEVER YOU ASK FOR IN PRAYER, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24) [Once again:] “MAY THESE WORDS OF MY MOUTH AND THIS MEDITATION OF MY HEART BE PLEASING IN YOUR SIGHT, LORD, MY ROCK AND MY REDEEMER.” (Psa. 19:14)
Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that WHATEVER WE ASK FOR IN PRAYER, BELIEVE THAT WE WILL RECEIVED IT, AND IT WILL BE OURS!
