Prayer for January 12th’ 2023

Good morning, God —thank you!!

The practice of slander is demonic and not of you. The root of backstabbing is a deceitful heart. Name-calling and slander could leave deep wounds that last a lifetime. Ungodly competition can also lead to division and hinder friendships —speculation and hearsay ruin reputations. You hate slander. It is deceptive, destructive, and devious. I desire to guard someone’s name —diplomatically confront wrongdoing by helping them. Keep the bond of unity in honor of you. Pray for them. A loose tongue is a deadly weapon. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Psalm 101:5

Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.

Matthew 12:36

36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

1 Peter 3:16

16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

James 3:15-16

15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
