You Have Been Prayed For… EPHESIANS 5:4

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; ( 2 Peter 1:2) Confession time yet again.  I had been using  silly talk and profanity as normal conversation, unknowingly destroying myself and those around me with these verbal bombs, for most of my life.  Once God grabbed my attention through a beating (Thanks again Pastor Dan) I was ready for the blessing.  I very rarely find myself using this filthiness today and have been freed from that bondage by Jesus, my chain breaker.  It has meant a great deal to me to overcome the habit and I feel so much closer to God.  Sin creates gaps in the relationship, so please do not kid yourself into rationalizing the sins of today as acceptable or OK.  Sure we have grace, and a hallelujah to the King for this gift, but don’t go any bury it, invest it!

James 5:16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

Ephesians 5:4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.

Lord Jesus, thank You for Your saving grace. Thank You for new days and the refining trials of life that lead us to You. This morning my Lord I praise Your Holy Name and pray that You will use us for the Kingdom. Control our tongues and keep watch over the doorways of our mouths. Put in us a heart so soft that we cannot help but attract others to the light, Your light Holy Spirit that would shine so bright evil will flee. I offer this pray in The Spirit and in Jesus’ Name, amen.

  1. This prayer triggered a memory from nearly 60 years ago. My father severed in the Merchant Marines during World War 2. His language and choice of words were definitely not suitable around most people. Some were downright horrible to a young and impressionable boy, young Frank. Fortunately, although not when he abandoned my mother and I in the early 60’s and never paid my mother one cent in alimony or child support even though he could as a firefighter for the city of Miami…it was a blessing for that language not to be heard on a daily basis.
    Some of those words or phrases are still in my mind, very rarely do they pass my lips.
    Another trip down memory lane.
