Prayer For God To Forgive You For Gossiping

Dear Lord,

Please help me control my tongue. I want to respect you and others through every word that comes from my mouth. I ask for patience and self-control in every conversation I carry. Please also help me to also be aware of what I listen to and participate in. May I glorify you in all that I do. I especially pray that I do not gossip about my husband to family and friends. I pray I do not talk badly about him. Lord, give me wisdom and discernment in every conversation I have to speak truth in love without gossip in Jesus' name I pray AMEN!

Heavenly Father, we gather together and come into agreement in the wonderful and powerful Name of Jesus Christ.

Where two or more are gathered there You'll be in the midst of us and anything we agree upon as touching You will surely do.

Father in Jesus Name, there is no distance in the spirit and we thank You for the listener who desires a prayer to refrain from gossip and to stay away from those who practice it.

Father, if we aren't cautious and actively keep a guard up against gossip, it's easy for us all to fall into speaking behind someone's back.

The listener comes before You today and asks for forgiveness, whether knowingly or unknowingly, for occasionally doing this.

They repent for any activity in gossip and they turn from it right now.

Lord, they raise their hand and admit it's wrong. They no longer want the enemy to use them in this manner.

Together in prayer we ask You to help them to put a stop to gossip in their life.

Help them set a guard over their mouth and tongue in Jesus Name.

It's time to stop gossiping about other people.

It would be naive to think that the opportunity to gossip will not arise again so when it does, please help them to graciously leave the conversation.

In Jesus Name please help them at all costs to avoid joining in on this sin.

The devil roams about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour and the listener will not allow themselves to fall into this trap any longer with Your help.

We decree and declare that through the power of the Holy Spirit within them they will not gossip.

They will not repeat gossip. They will not whisper gossip. They will not speak gossip. In no way will they pass it along.

If they would not say something in front of a person, open for all to hear, then they will not speak those words when they are not present.

We decree and declare that they no longer participate in the sin of gossip and they stay away from those who practice it.

Gossip is wrong.

Gossip is sin.

Gossip is not pleasant to You Lord.

Praise You Father that the listener speaks only those things that are pleasant in Your sight.

We believe and receive everything we've prayed and give You glory in advance for this prayer is answered!

In the wonderful and precious Name of Jesus we pray, amen.

Lord, thank you for your mercy and grace, even when we sin and gossip. Help me see this sin for what it ishateful, hurtful, and ultimately sin that separates me from you. Lord, give me a greater affection for you. Help me love you so much that it spills over into everyone I meet. Help me love you so much that the temptation to gossip melts away in the midst of my thankfulness and joy. Help me long to build others up, not tear them down. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.


Praise You for godly friends who hold us accountable. Thank You for illuminating the deceitful power of gossip, that we all entertain within earshot daily.

Forgive us for listening to it instead of walking away. We confess that often we don't speak up out of fear of rejection, and pray that you help us to have the courage to honor others with kind words when their character is being publicly slain.

Bless and heal those who have been mangled by gossip, and others enslaved by it's addictive habit. Heal our insecurities, and help us learn to turn to you for affirmation. Make us busy serving others in love to give You glory, instead of sitting in circles of babble and participating in chatter-filled phone calls. Empower us with Your Holy Spirit to head Your warnings, and steer our conversations with Your love.

In Jesus' Name,
