05 The Power of the Tongue, Freedom from Anxiety – Premium Content

Like the children of Israel in the desert, our thoughts and emotions are reflected in our words, and words have creative power for death or life (Prov 18:21). We can forfeit rest through constant negativity and complaining, the way they did, or we can follow the creative Consciousness of the universe to the promised land of rest.

L | Listen (Receive the Word via audio or video.)

O | Observe (Connect the passage to your life and recent events.)

Have you noticed that the more you complain and murmur, the more you get what you’ve complained and murmured about? Whether you think it’s worth having or not . . .  you’re right. What do you want to say to Him about that? 

V | Verbalize (Pray about your thoughts and emotions.)

Remembering that He loves you and that you are in His presence, talk to God about the particulars of your O – Observe step. You may want to write your reflections in your LOVE the Word® journal. Or, get a free journal page and guide in the right-hand margin.

E | Entrust (May it be done to me according to your word!)

Heavenly Father, I ask that Your love flow upon me. May the Blood of Christ cover all wounds and restore all in me to wholeness and life. May the fire from Our Lady’s heart now enter me and anoint everything with the Holy Spirit and blind Satan. May St. Joseph wrap me with blessings and peace, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen + (Prayer for Inner Healing, Deliverance Prayers for the Laity, Fr. Ripperger)
