Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits – Proverbs 18:21
“He touched my lips with the burning coal and said, “This has touched your lips, and now your guilt gone, and your sins are forgiven.” – Isaiah 6:7-13
This prayer goes hand in hand with deliverance prayers and renunciation of covenants. It is very important to deal with word curses. People that are hurting often hurt others, and we are all guilty, but unhealed wounds are an access way for the enemy! Give yourself and your family a fresh start and break the power of negative words that can hurt your spirit, damage your faith and leave you and others wounded.
Father, Your word says in Isaiah 54:17 that “No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue which rises up against me in judgment shall be condemned,” and that this is my inheritance in the Lord. Right now I condemn every negative word that has been spoken over myself, my family and my future in Yeshua Hammasiach (Christ Jesus) name. I lift up (name the people you want to lift up in this prayer) and I repent for, and I condemn every negative word I have spoken over myself, my family, and our future.
I repent for vows made silently or spoken and I ask that You release me, and all those affected by those things to be released, from any ungodly vows. I repent for speaking any words that are contrary to Your will O God, and I break the power of them now in the name and authority of Yeshua Hammasiach (Christ Jesus). I also break the power of negative words of others spoken out of their own fear, anger, criticisms, offense, malice, ill will, envy, jealousy, unforgiveness and bitterness.
I break the power of false prophetic words. I break the power of prognosticators, physicians, parents, ministers, teachers, peers, and authority figures in our lives that had power to negatively influence us, create fear or harm our self-image, self-esteem or belief system. I call our belief system back into alignment with God and His Word.
I break the power of negative words, including those that have evil spirits associated with them through the use of conjuring, spells, incantations, potions, and all forms of magic and witchcraft; words and spirit associations that have been assigned to us in order to perpetuate a curse must now be broken and all curses made void. I command in the name of Yeshua Hammasiach (Christ Jesus) that all evil spirits associated with these curses to leave me, my family, and all that pertains to our lives, and be sent back to hell immediately.
I command all open doors to the enemy that originated with these harmful words to be closed now and the blood of Yeshua applied to those doorways. I forbid the enemy from crossing through the blood. I declare that those negative words will no longer ring in my ears, nor in those that have heard or repeated negative, condemning words. I declare that words that have been used as a weapon will no longer ring in the ears of my loved ones and hinder their faith or their future. From this day forward, I declare their ears shall be deaf to condemning words laced with a spirit of death.
All shame, insecurity, inferiority, fear, failure, unworthiness, rejection, loathing, rebellion, lawlessness, idolatry and perversity that originated from these ungodly words and their effects is now broken off of myself and all my family members. I declare only faith, peace, joy, love, and confidence in the Lord Yeshua shall prosper in their heart, mind and spirit in Yeshua Hammasiach (Christ Jesus) name. Let the love of Your Holy Spirit, of Your mercy and acceptance be shed abroad in our hearts. Let there be revelation, truth and understanding released into our hearts and minds. Let the counsel of Your Ruach Haccodesh (Holy Spirit) unravel every lie and bring us back to the truth that sets us free.
Father God, I thank You and Ruach Haccodesh (Holy Spirit) for releasing blessing into my life and that of my loved ones and enabling us to walk with our heads held high. I ask Lord in your mercy to also rewire and restore our thought patterns (see healing of the brain under restoration prayers).
Thank You for breaking every ungodly yoke of bondage and oppression that came as a result of condemning words. In Yeshua’ name, I thank You for Your great mercy and forgiveness and for a fresh start for me and my family. Amen

Sin is not ended by multiplying words, but the prudent hold their tongues – Proverbs 10:1

Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down – Proverbs 26:20
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue – Proverbs 31:26
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies – Psalm 34:13
Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips – Psalm 141:3
Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone – Titus 3:1-2
From the fruit of their mouth a person’s stomach is filled; with the harvest of their lips they are satisfied. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit – Proverbs 18:20-21
The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint, and whoever has understanding is even-tempered. Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues – Proverbs 17:27-28
The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood, but the speech of the upright rescues them. The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous stands firm – Proverbs 12:6-7
Evil doers are trapped by their sinful talk, and so the innocent escape trouble. From the fruit of their lips people are filled with good things, and the work of their hands brings them reward – Proverbs 12:13-14
The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing. Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment – Proverbs 12:18-19
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly – Proverbs 15:1-2
May my lips overflow with praise, for you teach me your decrees. May my tongue sing of your word, for all your commands are righteous. May your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts – Psalm 119:171-173
There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community – Proverbs 6:16-19
An unfriendly person pursues selfish ends and against all sound judgment starts quarrels. Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions. When wickedness comes, so does contempt, and with shame comes reproach. The words of the mouth are deep waters, but the fountain of wisdom is a rushing stream. It is not good to be partial to the wicked and so deprive the innocent of justice. The lips of fools bring them strife, and their mouths invite a beating. The mouths of fools are their undoing, and their lips are a snare to their very lives. The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts – Proverbs 18:1-8
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it – not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it – they will be blessed in what they do. Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless – James 1:19-26
You who practice deceit, your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor. You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. You love every harmful word, you deceitful tongue! Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and pluck you from your tent; He will uproot you from the land of the living. The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at you, saying, “here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others!” But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. For what You have done I will always praise You in the presence of Your faithful people. And I will hope in Your name, for Your name is good – Psalm 52:2-9
Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water – James 3:1-12
Like one who grabs a stray dog by the ears is someone who rushes into a quarrel not their own. Like a maniac shooting flaming arrows of death is one who deceives their neighbour and says, “I was only joking!” Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife. The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts. Like a coating of silver dross on earthenware are fervent lips with an evil heart. Enemies disguise themselves with their lips, but in their hearts they harbour deceit. Though their speech is charming, do not believe them, for seven abominations fill their hearts. Their malice may be concealed by deception, but their wickedness will be exposed in the assembly. Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them. A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin – Proverbs 26:17-28
